It's a new year and one of my resolutions is to try to keep up with my blogging. One thing I need to decide is how I want to use my blog. I have posted personal events, political rants, pictures, book reviews and so on. Should I try to start another blog for politics and keep this one personal or just simplify and post whatever I want to write or show at the time. Right now, I am staying with the latter.
Anyway, 2012 was a pretty good year. Teaching is very demanding, but I think I am learning a thing or two about the new methods they want us to incorporate in our instruction. Next year, I understand, we switch to Common Core State Standards, and that will present a host of new problems. But I have always been able to roll with the punches, so I have no reason to believe I won't be able to go with the new standards. I am already using them along side the old state standards (PASS).
I am very happy with the re-election of Pres. Obama. America has shown that it is NOT listening to the right-wing extremists who have taken over the Republican Party. The nation will survive because we Americans know how to roll with the punches.
I hope everyone has a safe, prosperous, productive, and happy new year.
Let's get on with it.
