Inspired By So You Want To Teach?

953731_lightbulbNew readers are coming to this blog all the time. As a new reader, the comments below will show you some of the many ways that reading this blog can be beneficial for you!

I have received a large number of comments and emails from people who tell me that they have been inspired to begin blogging as a result of this here blog. I must admit, I am very interested in getting other people to begin seeing the benefit of blogging through their experiences. I also am quite focused on personal growth in many areas of my life.

With that in mind, I know that I say some things very bluntly and don’t pull too many punches. Sometimes the things I say hit people where it hurts. Hopefully that discomfort (or flat out pain) can help to be a motivator to change something.

So I’m gonna throw this one back on the readers. What has changed in your life as a result of my blog. I’d prefer to hear the positive things most of all! What has been your favorite page on the site? Maybe one of the readers left a comment that impacted you. Share with us.

Basically, this is an invitation to share with the community of over 750 subscribers (and over 1,000 daily visitors) what it is that has inspired you to change your world in some way.

Joel Wagner (<strong><a href="">@sywtt</a></strong>) 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. <strong><a href="">So You Want To Teach?</a></strong> is the ongoing story of that quest for educational excellence.

  1. One more thing. I’d love to give you an opportunity to promote an article on your blog that you feel has the power to help someone change their life for the better as well. So share those in the comments too!

    1. You will be up on Friday.

      (FYI:I am probably hosting April 29th’s Carnival of Education. The wek after next. Bellringers in next week’s)

  2. Your blog was part of why I decided to do Edublogging. It was through random google searches on a GoPhone before I got a computer. It introduced me to a whole community of bloggers. It also helped me to gain publicity and improve my writing. It was also inspirational.

    Everytinng happens for a reason.


  3. I have your blog in my Google Reader so I don’t miss any of your posts. I’m not sure how I found you but I’m so glad I did! Your posts are easy and fun to read but they are also insightful and powerful. Can you tell I’m one of your fans?! I love reading your blog because you make me think (and sometimes I get lazy and don’t do that). When I start thinking about what you have written, I feel inspired to write my own post (and motivation to do this really helps me!) Here is my latest post in my blog: Freedom of Speech or Libel?

  4. I am not a teacher yet, but I am going to school to become one. I have read a few of your blogs, and I think that you provide a lot of good insight and helpful tips for those who are currently teachers, and those who are not. I think thant blogging can be a great way for teachers to compare their teaching styles, and get outside input to better their teaching ability.

  5. I think the biggest change that came from your blog was to focus my own blog on education. I now post about my struggles and successes, questions, and a bit about education law in North Dakota.

    Of course, I’d be a more successful blogger if I posted more regularly. Posts on SYWTT remind me that I need to post on my own blog.

  6. It’s so nice to help others begin their own blog. Everybody here is able to help others in turn. Thanks.
