Now blogging, a teacher near you

NEEDHAM

It seems that the world of blogging has a new force to reckon with: teachers.

Teachers from Needham to Martha's Vineyard have begun posting to blogs, according to a front-page story in the Globe today. Parents say the blogs have given them something to talk about with their kids.

"Instead of saying what did you learn today I would say, you know, I heard that your first-grade class got some chicks," said Daphne Davidson, mother of a first-grader in Needham.
