Generations Connecting to Each Other via Blogging

While managing my first graders blog site, I came across a comment that really made me smile. It was in response to one of my student's blogs and it read,


"This is my first blog response ever!" Love Grampa.


This young generation is reaching out to their grandparents and introducing them to blogging. I don't think anyone should worry about whether technology and social media will be used in the schools in the future. It is here and, as…

Blogging .. Almost as fun as watching chicks hatch

I have an incubator with eggs in my first grade classroom. Although it is in the corner of the room, it has become the epicenter of the classroom. Today as it was time for math and I did my best to get the children to sit on the rug for the beginning of my lesson on measurement. But they were hovered around the incubator. I didn't exist. Math didn't exist. Time and space stood still. A chick was emerging from its shell.


How do you call children away from an…

Seizing Daily Opportunities

I want to thank Philly-Teacher's blog (http://philly-teacher.blogspot.com/), for helping to inspire this post. In her last blog, she asked for a list on what you like about Education. I love posts which focus on the positive aspects of our job because, as we all know already, it is so easy to get sucked into the vortex of all the problems in education, political bashing and daily complaints.



Educators have the BEST jobs in the world! By BEST I don't mean easiest, most supported, or… Continue

Caught Up in The Energy of It All

My principal was showing a fellow PLN member from another state around our school at the request of the High School principal of our district. This teacher is relocating to our area and the High School principal thought it would be a great idea to introduce him to the faculty of our district.


Once it was explained to my principal how we all knew each other via our PLN on Twitter, she got interested. A conversation began in the hallway outside of my classroom and…

How One Tweet Changed A Teacher's View of Social Media

I've always firmly believed that life presents you with the perfect people, resources, opportunities and teachers at precisely the right moment. What I didn't know was how lightning fast this realization becomes once you become involved in social media.


When I ventured to create a Twitter account just over 3 weeks ago, I probably held the same exact thoughts that many teachers who aren't using social media currently hold:


Why should I…

Attitude of Gratitude

I love this past week's #edchat. It was all on teacher morale. After batting around who's responsibility it is to keep morale up, I think we all left the conversation realizing that we are responsible for our own morale. The best ways to keep your morale up is to help a fellow teacher and focus on the students. After all, how can you feel bad when you are helping someone else -- whether it is a child or colleague?


As teachers, we set the tone of our classroom.…

Writing and carrying out the design of a CV is a challenge that we all, once, have faced with greater or lesser success, but as your career evolves, curriculum development becomes more complex and requires a higher level of professionalization to express the differential value against the competition, the CV requires a much more strategic, differentiating, detailed and objective oriented design and writing. That is why many professionals, aware of the importance of transmitting the impeccable…See More
