About Me

I am 24 years old and have been married about a year and a half now, and have two children. One of the hardest things about my life is juggling school, work, homework, family, and dinners all in one day. I'm sure I'm not the only person with this problem so I decided to start a cooking blog that gives easy and quick cooking ideas. I hope this is helpful for everyone.

Internet Safety

For me I think the most shocking thing I learned from the readings and videos was about cyberbullying. Now students aren't just bullied at school any more; the bullying can follow them home and invade their whole life. I was not aware how prevalent this type of bullying was. As a teacher I will do my best to be aware of this problem and address it as soon as I find out. I think getting the parents more involved with what's going on in the child's life is also something that needs to happen. Teachers and parents should be aware of what students are saying to each other both in person and thru text messages and online.
I think the government does a good job of trying to give teachers and parents information about internet safety. They have websites specifically dedicated to helping adults understand the importance of internet safety.
I think as teacher we need to be involved in our student's lives; not just teaching them our assigned subject, but really willing to get to know them. Letting our students know that internet safety is a big problem is something that teachers should make a priority.
