In my ninth year of teaching, I am writing about my adjustment to high school teaching. I taught junior high for the first eight years, and this year's change came as a bit of a shock to me.
I also enjoy writing in general, and am practicing that here since I also like to relate other things I find on the Internet to what I'd like to say.
A note about being anonymous: It is a must. I understand that being and remaining anonymous makes my blog a little less personal.
Last year I came across a then current student's weblog which had threatening words towards me included in an entry; my district would do nothing to resolve this and she never found out I knew about her words. The police report I made had a non-result.
Not that I intend to make threatening remarks, but due to the incident, I do find it imperative to remain anonymous.
