Back in the days of myspace.com (apparently that is still a thing?), I used to blog quite extensively, mostly about the high school football team that I coached at the time. Every Friday night after our games, win or lose, I would get on my trusty MySpace account and write a post game synopsis of the game, my thoughts on the game, and other tidbits of (what I thought) was awesomeness. Then I realized how incredibly lame MySpace was and deleted my account. Which brings me to my Staind reference...
Since I deleted my MySpace account in 2009, I have been out of the blogging game. Do I have a Facebook account? Of course! Do I have a Twitter account? It took me a while, but I have fully embraced the insanity and awesomeness that Twitter is to an educator like myself (for the record, if you are a teacher and do not have a Twitter account, this is a requirement! Do it right now! Don't even finish reading this, just go to Twitter and register right now!). While I share my thoughts, rants, pictures, videos, etc. of everything from my family, my sports teams, music, my career, tips, and whatever so on and so forth, I have been out of the blogging game for a minute or two. It's high time I get back into the game and join the rest of the cool kids out there!
So, a little bit about me. My name is Kyle. I teach social studies at East Career & Technical Academy in Las Vegas, NV. This is my 11th year of teaching. I have a bachelor's in secondary education social studies, a master's in education, and an educational specialist in school administration. I am also a Google Certified Educator, a Remind Connected Educator, and a member of the state board for CUE of Nevada. My wife, Mary, and I have two children, Elsa (4) and Reed (7 months). I run, play hockey, fish, camp, and enjoy music on top of geeking out on history and tech tools for my classroom.
Now that I have spent a little time getting my feet wet again, I hope to make this a more regular thing. Until next time...
