I am thrilled to have created a new blog to take on the issues of teaching, the English language, and teaching English. I am especially thrilled that no one took the name, either: Docere Est Discere. For you non-Latinophiles, that means “To teach is to learn,” and that is my motto as I work through issues about my philosophy of teaching/learning and how I will think about teaching the English language as I move toward the end of my education program and into my waiting vocation.
The nice thing about this is that I can now separate what already felt fairly separate to me before: my philosophy and theological writings for which this blog was initially created, and the posts about teaching and language. So you will see less of me writing about language (unless it is concerning rhetoric in argument) and education. If you actually liked those writings better, then come on over and see what I’m writing about on those topics. For your convenience, I have even placed an RSS link in the sidebar, so recent posts on Docere will display here at TCC (and vice versa over there).
