Lots of teachers have disclaimers on their blogs, I do too, but this is one of the most interesting ones I have seen:
Of course these opinions, musings, rants and reflections do not express the opinion of my employer. One would be crazy to think that one single teacher could be the mouth piece for an entire district. Nor are my posts meant to offend mostly, nor mislead but rather provide a snapshot of my mind at a certain point in time on a topic.
So please feel free to disagree, agree, compliment or discourage further blogging but promise to not think this is in any way an official mode of communication for my employer. These are my opinions and while I stand behind them right now they may change so while you are at it, don't hold that against me either.
It's from a blog called Blogging Through the Fourth Dimension.  The things I really like about this disclaimer are the words "snapshot of my mind at a certain point in time" and that the opinions of the writer "may change".  To me this is exactly what we want to see with our students too.  Where they are now and allowing for  the possibility that after more learning they may be in a completely different place.

  1. This is a great disclaimer! I hadn't thought of having my students write a disclaimer for their blogs but it would be a good exercise in expressing that these are their views at this moment in time and they reserve the right to change them.
