I was tempted to title this post, “am I doing it right?” but I figured I’d jump in head first and see what the aftermath looks like (besides, admitting I don’t have a handle on a particular piece of technology makes me feel too much like my parents).

Hi, I’m Ian.

I’ve had an interesting few years living through the recession and after losing my teaching job to cutbacks I’ve done what I could to make ends meet. I’ve been a day laborer, a private bartender, a writing tutor and a loader for UPS. On occasion I’ve gotten some video work for local bands and businesses, but for the most part nothing was steady. Luckily, I’m now teaching English at the Barack Obama Green Charter High School in N. Plainfield NJ, which has been a great fit for me. It’s my hope that I’ll pick up some interesting ideas from this course to incorporate into my classes this year.

Spare time is at a premium these days, but when I get some I enjoy brewing my own beer, writing and working on video projects. Hopefully when things settle down for me I’ll be able to brew up a special ale for the class.
