The adventure begins

At the start of my 2nd year as a computer teacher in Philadelphia I finally felt like I started to understand what I was doing with technology and the internet.  That was until a great teacher in my district got me into her ning and into twitter.  This opened up a whole new world to me.  I was fairly comfortable with the internet and thought I knew plenty, but I was wrong.  There were so many educators out there sharing links and information and I immediately became intrigued to see what else was there. The plethora of sites got my attention and I started to bookmark pages for later and send some to a wiki for my fellow educators to use.  I figured the next logical step is to start a blog to share what I learn, to discuss topics of interest to me and educators and to strengthen my writing and presenting skills.

Please send me critiques, critisms, complements, and anything else that will make this blog, and myself, better.


  1. Congratulations on taking the first step. I always look forward to reading a new blogger's perspective.

  2. Yay Chris!

    I'm so glad that we connected online. It's weird how even 2 teachers in the same district connect better through the internet!

    I look forward to learning with you. It's always nice to have someone out there who really understands your day-to-day struggles.

    Welcome to the blogosphere!

  3. The Chicken Man says...

    Welcome to the real world! It is great that you have started blogging and getting into twitter etc. I started blogging in July and have not looked back since, through this and twitter I have got loads of ideas to use in my lessons nearly every single day. Great to have you on board buddy and look forward to sharing ideas with you - check out my blog at
