My Promise

*sigh* The obligatory first post on a new blog. The first post that tells the reader every little detail about you that quickly gets hidden by (hopefully) other posts. I get it, I don't like reading that either. Take a gander at my about me page if that's what you want to know. I won't bore you with the details here.

However, I will bore you with my promises. On that first day of school with a new class, we always create a class promise that we reflect on throughout the year. This is no different.

1. I promise to give you quality ideas. 

I LOVE what I do. I think everyone should learn a little bit of coding because as a wise 1st grader told me, "...coding makes me feel like a genius!" And let's be real, who doesn't love the feeling of being a genius.

2. I promise to not flood your RSS feed with products. 
I have a TPT... so what. But I refuse to use this as an outlet to sell my products. Yes, I use my products in my classroom, but I'm not going to flood your feed with advertisements. I want to show you good ideas to incorporate coding.

3. I promise to be respectful of my school.

Ouch -- this one is hard. There will be days I want to blast my school, principal, colleague, etc. But here is not the place. I love the quote, "Positives go out, negatives go up". I'm trying to do a better job this school year of being someone who actually tries to solve the negative things with people who can fix them.

4. I promise to proofread.

I'm a horrible writer -- I'm fully aware -- but that won't stop me from telling you what really happened in my day. I just may include a couple of extras errors here and there :)

And last,
5. I promise to connect with you.

Please, leave me comments if you have questions or comments. It's a lonely world being an elementary programming teacher!
