It seems that the only time I work on my personal blog is during my vacations. I just don’t seem to find time when school is in session. I do keep a school blog, shama.flhs.us, and a professional development blog, but micro-blogging is more suited to my life when working.
I love twitter and encourage my staff to use it. I am hoping that EdCampNYC will help encourage more NYCDOE teachers to create PLNs around the system to share best practices.
Feeling a little nostalgic these last couple of days, so I’m posting photographs buried in my Hard Drive.
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
