Hello world!

I’m new to the blogging world, and I’m here for a handful of reasons…

1. I’m a teacher and would like to start a study unit on blogging, so if I want my kids to try this I better figure it out before I actually jump in and teach others to do this.

2. Thanks to teaching writing, attending writing institutes in the summer and meeting authors I have been getting this gnawing feeling to start writing, not just to use the work in my classes but to do it for myself.

3.  Reading the Slice of Life entries (started on the twowritingteachers blog) from various contributors, I have been inspired to begin contributing to Slice of Life .  I’m really going to work on committing to the March Challenge!
