Tell me do any of my fellow colleagues have a MySpace account? Be honest? I want to know the truth about who is really blogging and who is not? I gave this whole MySpace thing a great deal of thought, and I won't lie, I have one. I am a young teacher and I think that you should be able to have a life outside of the classroom. But yet there are so many people that would disagree with me. My Fiance for example. He is a police officer and he claims that MySpace is trouble and a waste of time. Yet my site is blocked from underage viewers, it is set to private, and I only have pictures of myself and my family. There is nothing that could cost me a job! I don't communicate with students using it and I also do not allow them to view my page. Yet I know many teachers that do. So am I in fact wrong for having a MySpace? What are your views?

As the days wind down and the end of the 06-07 year draws quickly to an end, I am finding myself wondering how I can change for next year. I know that I will have some new technology for my room and be able to utilize it, but what about teaching ability? Do I become a "lazy" teacher because my students will be working on the computer so much? Or in fact, am I opening up doors for future teachers to join in? It is so difficult to figure out how I feel about this because I struggle with really knowing yet if I will be helping my students. I guess I need to see it first hand with a group of students to know if I am accomplishing something.
