I am a 4th grade teacher at Two Springs Elementary. I attended Dana College in Blair Nebraska and graduated in 2005. I earned my Master's Degree from Wayne State in May 2010. I am the oldest of 4 and I am originally from Bellevue. My husband Pete and I have been married for 3 years and we just celebrated our son Thomas' first birthday. I enjoy working with my students and helping them discover a passion for learning.
I am a PC person simply because that is mostly what I have had access to. As of now I don't really have a preference. As long as it will get the job done I will use it :) I try to use various technology tools in my classroom. Recently I have used Glogster, Twitter, Flubaroo/Google Docs and various Microsoft programs. I am always wanting to learn about more technology and find ways to use it in my classroom.
I would like to use this Blog to communicate with parents. I think it will be a great way for parents to know what is going on in my classroom. I would also like to become comfortable with blogging so I can help my students create their own blogs. I believe that blogs are a great way for students to get in touch with other students around the world. In the last few weeks as I have developed my PLN through Twitter I have discovered how useful a blog can be.
