A bit of background: I'm a teacher at a smallish high school in British Columbia. I am relatively new to the profession and have been a keen blog-reader for a while now. Most of the blogs I follow had been about my hobbies and interests, but in the past year I've started reading a few other teacher blogs and have been inspired to start one of my own. I teach math and science and french. There are more than a few math teachers blogging out there who write insightful, interesting and funny blogs, but I had yet to find any similarly interesting blogs about teaching modern languages. So I have decided to jump in to blogging with hopes of filling in the gap a little!
My goal is to blog about teaching a modern language in this new era of web 2.0/technology/smartphones. There may be some interludes to discuss the state of teaching in the public system today too. Being a french teacher, there will be some posts in french, and about french language and culture. I hope to integrate some web 2.0 tools into my teaching bag this year and look forward to hearing feedback from other teachers about integrating technology in the modern language classroom.
