Welcome and A Little About Me


Click on this link to watch a short presentation and find out a little more about me……………. A Little About Me


Welcome to my blog! My name is Karen Willis, I am a pre-service teacher embarking on a lifelong journey of teaching and learning.

I have enjoyed every moment of working with children for the last nine 9 years at a local Primary School. Each day brings new challenges and enjoyment in pursuing my goal of making a child’s day brighter and helping them become the best they can be.

I encourage you to share any ideas, resources or topics of interests relevant to teaching and learning. Let’s inspire and support each other as we continue our journeys. I wish to become the best teacher I can be and create an inclusive positive learning environment where each child is encouraged and is provided the opportunity to learn to the best of their ability.

In a technological twenty-first century it is vital that I continue to increase my knowledge and adopt new IT skills and strategies to enable me to create an enriching ICT environment with high quality learning experiences.

I intend to share my experiences with you, both good and bad as we learn from both types of experiences.


Best Regards


Karen Willis.

    • Hi Robyn

      Not a problem, I can add you now. To set up a blogroll click the +New button on the top of the page, then click link, once in there cut and paste the persons blog link, add their name, for the description I just type their name again, click the blogroll button then in the frame section click none (that is what I do, not sure what it means). Then your new person will appear in your blogroll. My blogroll is on the right hand side of my home page but it wasn’t there initially, if it isn’t you need to click on appearance, widgets and then drag the links or blogroll button (I forget what it’s called, will confirm) over to the right hand side so it can appear on your home page.

      All your comments from people following your blog will appear on your home page to the right.

      I will add you now : – )

    once in Widgets you drag the “links” tab over to the right hand side. I just double checked.
