I'm Starting a Blog!

I want to learn more and better ways to communicate with all of you.
Summer vacation has just begun, but this teacher is still working! I am currently attending a three-day conference that teaches me how to use more technology in my personal life and in my class. This blog is one of the fruits of my new education. I'm going to use this vehicle to keep my students and their families apprised of what is going on in my classroom. Not only will I use this as a method of regular communication (instead of email or Facebook), but I will also have students participate as guest bloggers during the school year.

In addition to learning how to blog, I am learning how to make videos with YouTube editor, how to use Google Drive, and Tweeting up a storm. I look forward to teaching you what I know and sharing stories of my summer and my family's summer travels.  

What did you do this summer?


  1. I also had a busy summer and am now hard at work preparing for the new school year. I went to a 5 day educational conference in Long Beach where I learned a lot of new things that I am excited to try this year. After that, I went on a real vacation. I got to visit Alaska, something I have wanted to do for a long time. It was AMAZING! I went on a land tour and then a 7 day cruise. I saw bears (Grizzly bears and black bears), moose, caribou, deer, sea otters, harbor seals, humpback whales and orcas, In addition, I got to see many glaciers, both hanging and in the water. Soon, I will have some pictures in my office that you can come see it you are interested. It was a fantastic trip and I am already planning to return to Alaska in the near future.

  10. I really like your seating arrangement, especially the yoga balls. Choosing where I get to sit is nice because I don't have to sit next to the people that distract me the most. I can't wait to be in your class this year! -Kate
