Testing, Testing…Is This Thing On?


It has been quite a while since I wrote anything on here. Life got busy, WordPress didn’t update correctly, Emails from the site overwhelmed me, and I basically was tired of the hassles that came along with the blog. So I pushed it to the back burner. I would feel inspired every once in a while to write something, but with the state of the website being as it was, that inspiration quickly turned to frustration. Until this month.

The layout of this blog has been basically the same since 2009 when I paid to have a theme professionally built for it. That theme was nice and pretty, but a whole lot has changed in the world of web design over the past seven years. So welcome to the modernized version of So You Want To Teach? Here are some highlights of what has changed.

  1. Images in the search results
  2. Search results ordered by relevance, rather than date
  3. Cleaner comments sections
  4. Comments open for all articles and no longer close after 15 days
  5. Trending Articles Widget
  6. I finally found a Social Media plugin that I like (SumoMe)

And now, all that’s left is for me to get back into the swing of writing. Expect an article tomorrow morning. In the mean time: Welcome back, have a look around, leave some comments and revive discussions.

Joel Wagner (@sywtt) began teaching band in 2002. Though he had a lot of information, his classes were out of control. He found himself tired, frustrated, disrespected by students, lonely, and on the brink of quitting. He had had enough. He resigned from his school district right before spring break of his second year and made it his personal mission to learn to be a great teacher. So You Want To Teach? is the ongoing story of that quest for educational excellence.
