Three Years for this Blog: Thank You

Today is the three year anniversary of my first (ridiculous and irrelevant) post on this blog. Over 400 posts later, it’s been quite an evolution.

I just want to thank you for all your support. Through this blog I have come to better define my role in the world of education.

That role is so much more than teaching 12 students with disabilities. It’s about standing up for what’s best for children, speaking out against institutional injustices, and sharing ideas and inspirations that may make some small or even significant impact on you.

Thanks for allowing me those opportunities. I wish you and your family the best in the new year.

  1. Matthew,

    The thanks goes to you for sharing your honesty, thoughtful perspective and useful, practical ideas. Your blogs are well written and a joy to read. I’ve been in the field of education for over 35 years and not only find them inspirational, timely and relevant but also a vehicle for me to challenge and sometimes change my own ideas and perspective. Keep blogging and letting your voice be heard!

  2. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and experiences! You give all educators inspiration and timely topics for reflection. Keep blogging.
    Happy New Year!

  3. It is so nice to hear from a fellow elementary special ed teacher! This is my 8th year and I feel like I am an island most of the time! Nice to read your words and know I am not the only one!
