I knew getting started blogging would be challenging for me.  It is not that I don't sit at a computer every night....I do.  It's just that by the time I am done my schoolwork and grading papers, I just don't have the energy to type!  

Today was a great day at school.  I am really enjoying my classes this year, especially my Algebra 1 classes.  I have started using an Interactive Notebook with my class and it is going very well so far.  They seem to love the lessons and I am hoping I will notice great results when I finally give them their first test.  My goal online here is to post some pages from my books.  I don't bring them home so I haven't taken any pictures yet.  Hopefully one day soon!  I have been getting a lot of my ideas from Sarah.  She is the author of the Math = Love blog.  She is a first year teacher but she is pretty amazing!  Check her out when you have time.

Getting Started.....

Ok....So I'm new, and yet not new, to blogging.  I have made two previous attempts at blogging but both crashed and burned!  I still have the blogs but I am not very active with them.  So why try again???

I have been challenged by my coworker, Nora Oswald, to do this.  She is amazing at it (check out Simplifying Radicals when you have time) and I love reading her posts, along with all the other bloggers I am now addicted to following every day.  I will link them as I mention them on here. :)

My goal for this it to do this in the mornings when I get up....I get up at 4am every day and leave for work around I am challenging myself to blog during this time.  I know I am insane to wake up that early but as the mom of 3 VERY active young children...this is the only time of day I get to myself and I cherish it!!!  LOL!  Those of you who are parents will totally understand this! And so know that it is 5 minutes to 6, I need to walk out that door.....more on Monday!
