Goodbye to you all....

Hello and goodbye to all of my blogging classes,

Well, the semester is coming to an end. It has been a pleasure to read each and every blog posting that you have written. I did not know how the blog would be received, but you have exceeded all of my expectations. Thank you.

Keep writing. Do not stop. The act of writing does not need to be painful; it should be a process that brings you to a better place. Writing can help you become a better reader, mathematician, and student. It can even help you become a better person. It really can.

Do not believe anyone who tells you that you cannot write. There will be some. It may be a professor or a friend or even a relative... Do not let them bring you down. You can write. I know it. You just not be writing in the way that person thinks is "good writing". However, what really is "good writing"?

I hope some of you continue this blog or start one of your own. Do not forget this when you are applying for jobs. This blog is a living document of your scholarly work and your interest in education.

Good luck in all you do!

Take care and have a wonderful holiday!

Hi Dr. Luongo!

I recently started posting (a.k.a--10 minutes ago!) I'm going to try and keep it up!

Hope your semester went well. I did my student teaching--that was an experience.

We'll have to talk sometime soon.

I plan to really pick back up on the blogging this up coming semester as I will be student teaching and I will probably have a lot to write about. I didn't realize how much I would miss the blog until I didn't do much blogging.
