Soooo much to learn!

   Okay, so I may be giving away my age here, but when I went to college (not to become a teacher - that came many years later) I carried a typewriter.

   And today, I think I figured out how to create a grab button and get people to follow me.  Now the grab button works, although I can't seem to get it to show my logo.  Anyone have any suggestions about what to do?
    And the followers was just a matter of reading all the way down through the gadgets that are available to me on this site, many of which do all kinds of amazing things that I may or may not ever use.

    So what have I learned?  Well, my brain hurts.  And it makes me a little humbler about how hard some of what I teach might be to my kids.  This techy stuff is second nature to some of you.  I love it, but it doesn't come easily to me.  Which I guess could be said about anything we teach.  Thank heavens for enthusiasm!

   Okay, if anyone has any ideas on how to make my logo picture show up, please let me know!


  1. Hey Marion! You are amazing! I've only thought about blogging. I don't know how you find the time! I have been trying to write a book - especially since attending the Writing Institute at MU this past summer. But, alas, even that is idling somewhat impatiently while work and life take a front seat. Molly signed us up with a family blog while she and Greyson were all scattered -but I imagine a private blog site is much different than a public one. I'm afraid I don't have much advice for you, but I'd love to follow you. Keep up the great work!

    1. Thanks, Kim. It is fun and I'm learning something new every time I post something or read someone else's blog. I discovered the world of teacher blogs this summer - there are tons of great ideas being shared around by teachers, whom as you know, are a pretty generous bunch. I figured I might as well join in on the fun!
