5 Reasons Why Teachers Should Blog

20 Apr

A lot of people are hesitant to start a blog because more often than not they believe they have nothing to say. However they often overlook the many benefits that they could get from blogging. Teachers and educators especially have so much to gain from blogging and we firmly believe that all should!

Here are a few of those reasons:

Blogging Helps You Reflect

Teachers often think back on what happened in their classroom and wonder what they could have done better. Blogging can help with that process by enabling teachers to log their actions, procedures, successes and failures, and issues they may have run into.

Reflection and self-evaluation are key components in personal and professional growth.

Blogging Connects You

Blogging provides the opportunity to connect with people from all corners of the world. Allowing you the opportunity to share and exchange ideas with people from all different perspectives. This also that helps us build a global classroom.

 Blogging Allows You To Share your Expertise

Blogging is also a great place to share you own knowledge and expertise with the world. Regardless of what you have to say in your blog posts someone somewhere will learn from it. Everyone learns and grows from different experiences; a blog is a place where you can share that knowledge.

Blogging Motivates You

Blogging provides opportunities for like-minded people to gather together and share their passions. Creating the perfect environment to draw inspiration and motivation from.

Blogging Is A Way To Find Support

Everyone at one point or another in their life could benefit from a little support. Through blogging you can develop a network of other people in your same shoes will most likely be able to answer any question or address any concern that you have. Even in the unlikely scenario where they couldn’t you will at least have a sympathetic ear.
