I don’t know what I expect, or what to expect of this, or from myself.
(Talk about the self-esteem issue roaring forth from my teenage years – will they *like* me? Will everyone just point and laugh? Will they LIKE me?)
(Here is a helpful hint for you, should you desire to continue collecting my brain-nuggets: I tend to think – and speak – using lots of parentheses. I think it’s a by-product of trying desperately to keep adult-onset ADD at bay. You know: don’t panic when the sidetrack happens, just acknowledge it and watch it float by harmlessly, then get back on track.)
I guess there is no way to get past the anxiety but to charge at it full steam. So, while this inaugural post is a little (a lot) rambling and pointless, I shall nonetheless make the commitment to write every day. I want to teach my students in the best way possible – leading by example. I encourage them to write often, and to read excellent writing. So, as the old saying goes, I must hurry, for there they go, and I am their leader.
There. That wasn’t so bad…
