Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve updated this blog. I plan on being a bit more publicly reflective this year as I continue to work as a teacher in a school in rural Victoria.
I have wrestled with the idea of a public, anonymous internet persona existing alongside my public persona of teacher. Minor celebrity status is a perk/failing of being a teacher in a small any town. I don’t add my students to my (real name) facebook profile, I don’t want them reading this and knowing it is me. Hence no surnames, no specific location details. I also just simply stopped blogging last year as I came to grips with being a brand new teacher.
I’ll also be playing with the themes a bit, as the aesthetic of the internet has changed a bit since I was here last.
So, 2014, the year I begin blogging again. Hopefully. It feels good to be writing again.
