Another Teaching Blog

16 notes

I’m having trouble finding a teaching job, and my mother asked if I could mention this blog in my cover letter or my resume.

“I mean UNICEF is following you, you should tell them that too.  That’s important, right?  And don’t a lot of people read your work?  Can you put that somewhere?”

It isn’t practical but it was a really sweet suggestion, and an adorable ego boost.

Do your employers know you have a blog?

My principal knows I have A blog, and he’s aware I talk about teaching on it, but he doesn’t know what it is or what I do really.  He knows about it because of the support I got for my Donors Choose project as well as other classroom supplies that have been donated by tumblr readers through my Amazon wishlist.  

Has he ever pressed for more information?  I’ve considered mentioning it in conversation as an example of the ways in which I use technology to further my own skills as a teacher — research, collaborating, discussing — but am wary of the possibility that it might turn to “Oh?  Can we see it?  Why not?”
