It’s great that Smith’s started this Soapbox. It allows me to share ideas with other teachers, students, friends, family and anyone with access to the internet. In high school I often asked people to help me out in the classes I found tough so this is my way of giving back. I do my best to write to educate, offer advice or simply entertain people with these posts and I wanted to thank everyone who’s reading this for taking the time to do so. An unexpected joy I have found is that sometimes students have noticed a few typos as I write these entries late at night or quickly between classes. Great job!! I always tell my students that teachers (especially me) aren’t perfect and I encourage them to point out my errors.
