What is this blog about anyway? (New Blogger Initiation Post 1)

For those of you unaware, I am new to the blogging world. I am new to the teaching world (at least new to being a teacher). I found, in my random bumblings, this great blog post encouraging folks who are new to the 'mathtwitterblogosphere' to join together and write four blog posts to start off the new year. 'This is exactly what I need!' I thought to myself. So here I am writing my first New Blog Initiation post of 2012. I was given the following prompt to write about: 

Where does the name of your blog originate? Why did you choose that? (Bonus follow up: Why did you decide to blog?)

I thought this was a great way to start my blogging (yes, I know I've already posted a few things but we're starting fresh here). I wanted to title my blog something that would make it really easy to tell what my blog was all about. I wanted it to be short enough that it wouldn't look daunting to read but I wanted it meaningful enough that you could read it and go, 'oh. I know what this is about.' Since I intend this blog to cover all things math education from my own personal perspective, I thought the title A Beginner's View of Math Education was an apt title. 

I initially wanted to start blogging because I sometimes feel like I have good ideas (like my idea for transitioning to common core state standards). And I wanted an outlet for sharing those ideas. Now that I'm getting into it, I hope that this blog turns into a place that I can post questions that I have as well. Especially if I can make some math teacher blogger friends through this new blogger initiative! 

So there you have it. Hopefully more great ideas, questions, thoughts, and experiences will follow! 


  1. Hi Kevin! I like your blog title! The "Beginner's" part keeps everything fresh, and we need fresh!! Good thing you didn't ask me because after blogging for 8 months, I only decided on mine a couple weeks ago :)

    Of course you have good ideas and of course you must blog! So, I'm glad you joined the initiation and it's my pleasure to feature you on my blog at

    Happy blogging! Fawn

  2. Wow, I love your site, big thank you to these ideas, and note in the first place that I fully agree with you! Let me emphasize, yes your article was excellent. I definitely enjoyed every little bit of it,
