Teachers blogging is the newest hot topic. History is Elementary was recently featured in USA Today. I applaud her in her courage to blog and identify herself. She is getting a lot of flack about it. I do not understand people who feel the need to express their pettiness because they have no real reason to dislike someone other than 'they just do.' Unfortunately there are some people in this world who feel the need to take their anger out on others. I guess the public forgets that teachers are human too. Granted humanity, in my opinion, does not give us an excuse to be slack in our jobs. Teachers live in glass houses sometimes--everything we do, say, and write is scrutinized. Even college-educated individuals make mistakes--I make plenty of them. At least we own up to them and are not bitter about it. If somebody feels the need to correct my grammar--I thank you for the concern. I just hope you are polite about.
To History is Elementary--YOU ROCK SISTER!!!!!!
