I'm Back.....

It’s been quite a while since I last posted.  I’ve found myself trying to do too much and as a result not producing anything (blogwise) at all.  I’ve been immersed in all that goes on in the classroom and advising a student newspaper, and have found myself falling behind on reading my Bloglines subscriptions.  Now that a new semester has started, I feel it’s time to refocus my attentions with this blog.  
First and foremost, this means that my posts will primarily be reflections on what is going on in my classroom, within my school, and with my kids producing our student newspaper.  I’ve cut down my Bloglines subscriptions (for now) to reflect this as well.  Anything that doesn’t directly relate to the subjects I’m teaching (journalism and American Studies) will have to wait until the summer.  I’m hoping this will translate into regular posts once again.  I think the reflections are important and the discussions and connections invaluable.
And now that I’ve found a new focus, I’ve got to come up with a new name especially since The Open Classroom was apparently already taken when I chose it.  Any ideas?

Tom, I have to correct your impression. I think you had the name first but I didn't know about it when I started my blog (in July 2005). We both had the same good idea. I know what you mean about having too many bloglines feeds - and I'm glad that I'm on holidays right now so that I can catch up.

Dear Tom,

I admire your efforts to have a blog and be on line.

It saddens me that an English teacher in the US cannot spell disappointments.

All the best to you in other areas.
