Introductions


Welcome to my blog.  There are many places where you could have found me.  If you’re so kind, you can comment below with where you found me.  That way I know who is reading this blog and how to direct the content based on who is reading it.
You may know me in real life, if that is the case, HELLO!  If not, you must know me from online or just randomly came across this blog.  Whether you are a teacher yourself, interested in teaching, or are just curious as to what this blog is about, well I will tell you.
First of all, I’d like you to know that there is a video that accompanies this blog and you can watch it below.  Or you can go to my YouTube page www.youtube.com/teacherruiz


If you’ve already seen the video, then this explanation to the blog will be repetitive.  But, if you didn’t want to sit through the 3ish minute long video, then keep reading.  I’ve been wanting to start a blog for a while now, but never knew if I should.  I mean, I’ve only been teaching for 1 year so how can that make me an “expert”?  Who would want to read about things a beginning teacher has to say?  Well… I would!!!  I love to read, watch, and see anything that can help me grow as an educator.  I, like I say in my video, do not consider myself an amazing teacher.  Although, one day I would like to be.  This little space on the internet I call my blog is just that, a blog.  A place where I can write my random thoughts on teaching subjects.
What to expect here are book reviews, pictures, ideas, lessons, websites, inspiration, whatever I feel like adding.  So please make this little blog a frequent visit.  I plan, but don’t get upset if I don’t, on updating this blog every Sunday.  Just to let you know, every post will not have a video.  You can expect every post to have at least a video, picture, or some other form of media.  Just to make it a little more interesting because I just write my posts as I’d like to read them.
People and Places that give me inspiration…
Until next time… BYE!!!
