Tim's 1st Blog Post...Ever!!!!
This is my first blog. Who knows where this will lead. To do anything well you need to practice. Many people think practice makes perfect. Cal Ripken Sr, a former coach and manager of the Baltimore Orioles, coined the phrase, “Practice doesn’t make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect.” Hopefully, I will be able to make this blog into something useful. To do this, I will need to practice. I have wanted to try new things in my classes, but it is very difficult to do this during the school year. So here I am, on my summer break, trying to start a blog. For this blog, I am going to start slow. I am hoping to incorporate my AP Physics class so this will be more useful. Of course, it is summer time and many of my students are taking a break from school. I have assigned them work to do in preparation for the rigorous school year ahead. I hope they will complete the assignments on time. Maybe I could use this blog as a means of communicating with them throughout the summer. I would like to get up to speed on this so it can actually be useful in my class.
