A Brave New World of Blogging!

Hi, friends!

Welcome to my new teaching blog.  My name is Steven Marconi and I am going to be entering my second year of teaching middle school English and Journalism in just over a month from now (yikes).  Less than a year ago, I was almost a two month old college graduate and still waiting for my dream career to come knocking.  I waited, waited, and waited some more. Finally, the opportunity came.  I interviewed and accepted a position at an AMAZING school with an even more amazing group of students and staff.  Throughout my first year, I definitely learned a lot about who I am as a teacher and I am a strong believer that I will be learning even more about who I am as a teacher for many more years to come. 

Anyways, more about my blog and less about me… I wanted to start a blog for two different reasons.  The first reason I started this blog is to open my classroom doors to the parents and families of my students for whenever they want to drop by without actually having to step foot in the school.  The second reason I wanted to start this blogging adventure is to share some of the ideas with my fellow teachers that I am using in my English and Journalism classes. 

Please feel free to take a look around my blog and see all of the awesomeness it has to offer.  Feel free to follow me on Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, Bloglovin, like my Facebook page, and check out some of the great resources that I have uploaded to my TpT store.  If you choose to follow my blog, you can either enter your email address or simply click on the follow button on the Google Friend Connect icon when you scroll down. 

Thank you for taking the first step in joining me along my journey as a middle school teacher.  It’s going to be filled with some amazing adventures and I can’t wait to share them all with you.

I always enjoy working with people who truly enjoy what they do... with your fervor and creativity, I know that you'll continue to be a great educator for years to come.

  3. Welcome to the world of blogging, Steven! I am so glad that you stopped by my blog and left a message on one of my posts. You caught my attention when you mentioned that you teach 6th grade English. I've been a 5/6th grade Language Arts teacher for going on 35 years and am still as excited as when I first began! You've got the beginnings of a wonderful blog here and I look forward to following you.
