The first years of practice can be a time of great hope and exhilaration -- and fatigue and anxiety. This group is designed to allow new teachers and veterans alike to connect and share that sense of community that is so important in the first years.

First time doing a website

Brittany Lee

Hey everyone. I'm in a class where I have to make a website and focus it around where I start student teaching. What do I need to say about myself? What do I bring to the classroom? What could I saw for a disposition statement? I need a mission for the class. I also need to explain my goals for the class, and what I hope to accomplish. My teacher didn't say what subject I should focus around, or should I focus on evry subject? I'm just overwhelmed I think. I may be over analyzing this. I'm sorry if my questions sound stupid, but this is for a grade, and I do want my website to look good. Thanks alot!

Hi...Are you really having to do a website? or a blog site?
Here is a good clean example of a teacher's website. http://www.kylepace.com/
The company that made his website,helps educators create theirs, for a fee of course.
You could also use posterous.com. Its a very easy way to create a website.
Blogger.com is the easiest way to create a blogsite.
Megan's website on Edublogs.org will also give you an excellent example of a teachers website. http://middleschool101.edublogs.org/

I hope this helps!

Let me know!

Yes. I have to do the website through the site my teacher gave us... teacherweb.com. We're given a code, so it's free for us for a while. I've finished my supply list, my "made up" homework, and announcements. I also have to make a quiz, which I think I'll do tomorrow. It's the "About the Teacher" I'm stuck on. I don't know what to say about me. lol

Well, I got a 13/15. I don't like my website. I don't quite much like the site we had to use. I mean it was easy to fix, but... Anyway, thanks for the help, Lisa!

Brittany...wow, 13/15 that sounds pretty good to me! I know it must have been hard to do with a site that wasn't your "cup of tea". But you did and now you can move forward, hopefully with other great projects!

Keep in touch!
