Yes!! It seems that I have a new blog … as if I still have a lot of free time!
So far, I already have:
- 1 abandon tumblr (I will update something there …one day)
- 1 Indonesian blog which only being updated when there’s a funny story around my students. I call it Celoteh Siswa & Guru (rarely updated)
- 1 Turtle blog called Underneath The Shell…this one is highly maintained. This blog is very special because it’s concerning my lovely turtles.
- And of course…THIS BLOG!!
I recently made a new blog…not because I want to but because I HAVE to. My school hold teacher appraisal every end of school year. It is a way for them to measure teacher’s performance for 1 year and will be used for salary consideration. We have to write our reflection throughout a year…well, almost a year.
I had to work real fast before my appraisal day, I tried looking back everything I have taught in one year and searched for the evidence of my teaching (like photo or student’s work). In other word, we have to make a PORTFOLIO!
One of the teachers made an electronic portfolio, she made it in weebly. I honestly think what she did was genius. We can reduce using paper to print out the portfolio. Following her step, I created a new blog (still using wordpress) which will be my portfolio for every end of school year.
The title of the blog is TEACHING AT AIS because it is purely for my portfolio…but it is open for public, if anyone feels interested to read what I have taught at school…feel free to stop by and drop a comment or two 🙂
As the purpose of the blog is to share what I have taught each unit (one semester consists of 3 units), workshops I have attended, and other school related…so this blog will not be updated so often…but it’ll not be abandoned either. So far, I like that new blog of mine because I can look back on everything I have taught in one year (and the following year)
Next topic 🙂
HOLIDAY IS COMING!!! \(^_^)/
April 18 is Good Friday, that means we have a long weekend, from Friday to Sunday…and after that I have a mid-term break for 1 week.
I am planning to go to Mount Papandayan from April 18 to 20 🙂
I had visited Mount Papandayan when I was still in college. I love to go there again. unlike most mountain, the crater of this mountain is before we reach the summit. The last time I remember, the smell of hydrogen sulfur was so thick.
Papandayan is still active. On Friday September 2, 2011, the Indonesian Volcanology and Geophysical Disaster Mitigation Center reported that numerous shallow volcanic earthquakes had been recorded along with other indications of volcanic activity. There aren’t any significant activity for a couple of year…I really hope it stays like that while I am there.
I hope everything will be fine there and I can get lots of great pics 🙂
