MzTeachuh's Year End Roundup

Writing a blog is an enormous privilege, a blog for education even greater. The enormity of publishing posts with influence, interest and information relevant to my colleagues invigorates and inspires me. These are top posts from last year in the areas I have chosen to focus. 

On the day of President Obama's second Inauguration, the MzTeachuh site received over 2500 hits during his speech on a post about Dr. Martin Luther King; folks looking for more information. What a profound honor to provide a biography and links. I reposted this in August.

I really enjoy offering resources for the classroom and the home.

Teachable Moment: Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" 

Teachable Moment: Mid-Autumn Moon Festival 

Teaching Is Taking Time For Art--In All Subjects 

Here are prominant topics for educators last year. Both ed tech based and classroom management based theory sought to incite learning for all kids.

Inquiry Based Learning AKA Project Based Learning 

ePLNs for Teachers –Getting Connected 

Communicating in the 21st Century Tweets of the Day 3/14/13 

School organization was another hot topic with the trigger school question. My journalism background kicked in and I interviewed Principal David Mobley who ferried his school safely through an extremely difficult time. He is now principal at West Creek ES,

There is so much valuable information about ed tech and Special Needs, I branched out with two more daily posts on those subjects. Apps for mobile and other devices are the biggest topics in both the ed tech and special needs areas.

I still love to post fine arts--music, art, literature and especially poetry. Pop culture, of course. And my classes always know I have a whacky sense of humor. That's just me.

Educating the whole student--SEL Social/Emotional Learning--leads me to post activities for classes and families to enjoy nature while learning and relaxing together.
