So here goes.
My FIRST motivation for doing this: I am a retired teacher and loved my job. Actually, I loved my 'kids' (A loving way to refer to my students.) I loved creating lesson plans that were interesting, different, motivational, creative, and on and on. I loved seeing the "light bulb go off" in their eyes. I miss all that. I still "create lesson plans." I just don‚t write them down and "share" them anymore. Lessons plans provided structure for my day. I now realize I still need that structure and feel that creating a GLOB will fill that need.
My SECOND motivation: At my age, I'm finding I can't remember as well as I once did. Not that I ever had a good memory, but it is failing me to a certain degree. It has been proven that continuing to learn, study, and try new activities helps. Plus, it might make me a more interesting person. After having checked out several GLOBS, I have seen the networking that takes place. Not to mention the fun I'm having doing this.
My THIRD motivation: I don't have a clue how to put a picture up - OR record an audio clip, or maybe even to post back, but I want to learn. So, I will need some help and my new globberfriends will need some patience.
Just a little BLURB about me:
I signed my first teaching contract in 1972 when I was 19. At this point, some of you may be doing the math. How old is she? And possibly asking, did she have a credible license to teach.
Chronologically I am—well, you do the math. . Developmentally is yet to be determined. The answer to the second is: YES.
You will find spelling, capitalization, punctuation, grammar, etc. errors in my GLOB. My singular subject may not match my plural verb. My tenses may never match. Feel free to correct me. I can handle constructive criticism.
More BLURBS will come later.
