Hello! My name is Tiffany. I am a third grade teacher. I am starting my 3rd year of teaching! I love having the summer to relax and get new ideas for the following school year. I am currently taking a technology class for education, which leads me to my new classroom 2.0 account. I am very excited to use this site to broader my knowledge of the internet and get ideas from other teachers!
Hi! My name is Jayme Peterson and I teach kindergarten in Salina, KS. This will by my fourth year. I am working on my masters degree through Baker University and was introduced to Classroom 2.0 through one of my classes. I am amazed at all of the valuable information and resources out there!
My name is Colleen, I am from Philly. I teach Social Studies. I have been teaching in the Philadelphia Public schools for four years, prior to that I taught in private school for 10 years. I have just been enlightened to the web20 technology and I am ready to jump in with both feet. I have some anxiety about my school's equipment (totally outdated) and trying to cope with what my students have to work with, not much. Anyone have any suggestions about sites where my students can create things??? This whole year will be trial and error, in terms of what is blocked or unblocked, what machines need upgrades or not, and how my students will respond. I am so excited for this new adventure. It is amazing.
Hey there! I am just starting Classroom 2.0 and I discovered it when I took an archived webinar on technology and math. In the future I am considering taking Teaching and Technology as my masters program, so I have been trying to brush up on my knowledge and use of the medium. I hope that networking with other teachers who are using technology in the classroom will help me grow and find new ways to use innovative teaching methods.
Currently I am part of a teaching team that works with fifth graders in a summer school program. It has been an outstanding experience thus far and I am excited to go to work every day! During the school year I work at a Setting IV school for high school students with emotional/behavioral disorders. We are starting to see more progressive work, but I really look forward to a time when we can better use technology with this population as it is highly engaging and has so much to offer educationally. I suppose that could be said of every classroom though.
Hello everyone! My name is Alice Aichele. I teach 8th grade American History in Columbus, Ohio. I am also the IBMYP Coordinator (our school is going to submit Application A in spring '10).

Hi Everyone! I'm Aviva from Ancaster, Ontario, Canada. I've taught Kindergarten for eight years, and I'm "moving up" to teach Grade 1 next year. For the past couple of years, I've had a SMART Board in my classroom, and I use it all of the time for full-group and small-group instruction. I also used a SMART Document Camera last year, and I was so impressed at how independent my students were at using all of these technological tools. This year, I want to use Skype with my Grade 1 class. If you have any suggestions of different ways to use Skype, or you're interested in partnering with me to use Skype, please let me know. Thanks!

HI! My name is Sarah. I will be going into my 4th year at MSUM majoring in elem/sped ed. For one of my on-line summer classes one of our assignments is to start blogging on an educational site. I am looking forward to reading blogs posted by other individuals and participating in blogs myself!
Hello, my name is Joel Garcia. I live in Long Beach, California. I would like to say thank you Steve for opening my eyes to Linux Terminal Server technology. We spoke 14 months ago during the CUE conference and talked about how you created your portable Linux lab, 32 computers strong for around a $1000. I made a diagram of your lab and did a bit of research. In September of last year 2008, I put together a lab of 14 recycled computers that run sweet using Edubuntu 8.04 LTS. I have a website for my students and recently created a blog and now I have joined Classroom 2.0. What is so fabulous about this is that my students are using technology to learn; we have two more labs running strong with two more in the making; and the fact that we are doing this in the midst of a funding melt down in our district at no cost to my school or the district.
Hi, I'm Nancy Wysard. I'm soooo excited to be part of Classroom 2.0, yay! thanks!!
I'm Puerto Rican but Hawaii is my home now. I love teaching Spanish. I got my Bachelor in Education since Spanish is my native language and got a Master of Spanish (Literature) so that I could teach about all Hispanic countries. I consider myself a fun teacher lol! so I have to constantly search for new innovative ways to get my lessons to my students. I don't know if I'm a beginner in this type of teaching but I have much to learn. I am definitely expanding my teaching style and stepping out into the 21st century LOL! It is definitely a fun adventure. I teach Spanish 1-4 and it will be my third year teaching 8th-12th graders. Fun Fun!
