Living Avivaloca

It’s hard to believe that September’s almost here, and in just a few weeks, I’ll officially be a Grade 6 teacher. I’m thrilled about having this wonderful new teaching experience, but with this change, there comes one more change as well: I need a new professional blog name.

For years now, my blog has been called, A Primary Blog For The 21st Century. As a K-2 teacher, this name worked well for me, and definitely encapsulated the topics that I discussed in my posts. I’m no longer a primary teacher though, and I think that my new blog name needs to reflect the new me.

Jared Bennett (@mrjarbenne), the 21st Century Fluencies Consultant for our cluster, has helped me a lot with my blog over the years, and he even helped create the header for my Primary Blog. When I messaged him last night about changing my blog name and header design, he really got me thinking about how I could use my Twitter handle in my new blog name. What a great way to really help with my digital footprint!

So now became the issue of deciding on how Avivaloca would move from Twitter to blogging. Jared assisted with the new title of, Living Avivaloca: how could I not make the connection to the Ricky Martin song? 🙂 Now I needed a subtitle though that takes this catchy title and really makes the blog about me and about what I share here. I woke up this morning with the answer: My Many Musings on Life and Learning. I admit: I love the alliteration aspect of it. This title does represent me. It does represent what I share.

I hope that you like it too, and that you’ll check back here regularly to read and add to my many musings as I embark on a new adventure: Grade 6! 

I couldn’t resist the musical avatar for the musical title! 🙂

    • Thanks for the nice comment, Shannon! I’m so thankful to Jennifer Faulkner (@learninghood), who surprised me tonight with the BEST present ever: this new header for my new blog. Now I think I like the title even more. 🙂
