First Time Blogger

I have spent a good amount of my summer on pinterest which led me to many blogs. I have read about a lot of amazing ideas that I could use in my classroom. This led to the decision for me to start my own blog. I'm not exactly sure about how I will use it, but I do know that I love sharing ideas and I love getting feedback from others.

Let me start by discussing the title of my blog, Teacher of Scholars. Last summer I read the book Teach Like A Champion: 49 Ways That Put Students on the Path to College by Doug Lemov. One of the overriding ideas in the book is to teach students how to be scholars. My goal this year is to get my fifth grade students looking towards college and knowing what will be expected of them when they get there. Therefore, I will be calling them Scholars from day one. They will be treated like scholars and will hopefully head to middle school with the understanding of exactly what it will take to get to college as well as what it will take to be successful when they get to a college campus.

Well, that's all I have for my very first blog. Thanks for reading my very first blog. I welcome any blogging suggestions.

  2. I like your blog! I agree that we need to teach the behaviors of scholars to the students.
