Zero to Hero Bloggers

10 Jan

Zero to Hero is a blogging challenge that The Daily Post is running for the month of January.   The daily challenges are designed to encourage new and experienced bloggers to really connect with their readers.  I’m already behind and probably won’t manage one task a day but I’ll do my best to complete the challenges.  I’m hoping it will be a fun way to get myself back in the swing of blogging.  If you have a blog head over to The Daily Post and check out the challenges.

DAY ONE: Introduce Yourself

Who am I?

When I began this blog I was just finishing off my final year of my Bachelor of Education: Primary Degree and was looking forward to beginning my first year of teaching on a year 1/2 class.  Check out my TOT(W) Launch to see who I was when I began this blog 18 months ago.

Who am I now?

One year into my teaching career and I am pleased to say a number of things have not changed – I am still passionate about teaching, connecting teachers from all walks and reflecting on my practice in order to take action.  One of the biggest changes I have seen in myself is the growth in my confidence.  I have tested my beliefs about teaching, tried new things and have learned to believe in myself as a professional.  I have been through bumpy bits and questioned my ability to make a difference in the complex world of education but am realising continuing to be enthusiastic and collaborative will make a difference somewhere along the line – even if only small.

Why am I here?

I am here to reflect and document my own learning journey as well as to challenge, encourage and connect with other teachers from all walks of their teaching lives.  This year I would love to hear more from you and hopefully provide other teachers with a place that they can reflect, discuss and share.

    Great to see you on board the Zero to Hero challenge! I’m a bit behind too! It’s almost time to head back to school. You ready?

      You inspired me Mel 🙂 Need to do serious catch up this week though. Nope, definitely not feeling ready yet – hoping it won’t take too long to get back in the swing of things.
