Blogging isn't hard, but making the time to do it seems to be hard for me. It's a shame, because the reflection required to write a blog is critical to my success as a teacher librarian. I know this. But finding time - MAKING time - to blog is still a weak point for me.
I have kept up wth the weekly staff newsletter challenge that my AP put forth to me at the start of the school year and I am immensely proud of that. I also think those newsletters help me reflect on the week, my learning, our students, and my teachers' needs. Perhaps this is me trying to make myself feel better about my failure to regularly blog. But it is also true.
By weekly newsletters to teachers have morphed into shorter, smaller, but more effective communication tools. And I have seen a large upswing in collaboration with them and myself as a result, so I'm calling it a win!
