This blog was originally named Cruel Shoes. It was named for a reason which was appropriate at the time (to understand why I named this blog Cruel Shoes and how it came to be, read my original blog post. You can find it HERE.). I have a new perspective now, and even though I don’t feel like Cruel Shoes was necessarily a negative blog, I think the name itself could have given the impression of negativity for those who don’t know my sense of humor.
This made me decide I wanted to change the name. I struggled with what to name it – I learned today … – It’s about the students … – and finally I decided I needed to stay true to the blog’s origins and keep my shoes on!
From My Shoes was inspired by the saying “don’t judge a man until you have walked a mile in his shoes.” Understanding that being sucessful in my profession is about acknowledging perspective, I wanted the name to reflect the nature of the blog itself – as my perspective.
I don’t pretend to be an expert on what I write – I am just saying what I’m thinking. I enjoy a good discussion, and welcome comments on my blog articles!
