I am a Third Grade Teacher in Goochland, Va. This is will be my third year teaching 3rd Grade. I have taught Kindergarten for 15 years and 1st grade for one year. So teaching 3rd Grade is like starting my career all over again. I am constantly looking for new ideas. I teach Math, Reading, and History. Any ideas on Famous Americans and Explorers?
Hi! I am Amy Wells from Wichita, Kansas. I am a looping teacher generally, but due to future boundary changes, I am making my temporary home in third grade this year. I was introduced to 2.0 through a class for my masters in school leadership and am loving the dialogue here! I hope to learn more about integrating techonology into my classroom as well as my administrative duties in the coming school year.
Hi, I'm Pam Moore. I am interested in getting up-to-date on "easy" technology to use with my students although my main interest is using TPRS in the FL classroom. I subscribe to FLTEACH and the AP Foreign language listserv along with receiving e-mails from OFLA. I sat in on a workshop on Twitter & Tweet which enabled me to sign on here and am currently on FaceBook. Passion: Spanish/Spain

Hello, my name is Berta. I am a high school science teacher of 20 years in Miami, Florida. I am also presently working on my doctorate in Information Technology and Distance Learning with Nova Southeaster University. My interest in Web 2.0 and social networking sites (SNS) is two fold: for my classroom use and to formulate my dissertation questions. This is the area I am interested in all around. I welcome any suggestions, both for classroom use in a high school science class and for dissertation ideas. Thank you for accepting me into your group.

Hello Rosie Perez here from Fort Myers Florida. 1st year teacher...teaching Computer Applications 6-8 Intro to Computers 4th & 5th gr, Broadcasting Communications and now Drama. Transitioning from the financial world into teaching has been an advantage for my students. I have incorporated great lessons based on experience working in the financial world. For example, What is the stock market, how to calculate stocks, how to research a company, how to become an entrepenuer...currently working in making changes to these lessons. I wanted to create a site in which students can upload their projects and also open class discussions. I work for a charter school and do not want to go through the "AUP" wanted to do something on my own where only the students can access. Thinking of google or something. Also wanting to incorporate any new ideas to introduce my students with 2.0 skills. Thanks
