Hello all. My name is Jenn Brooks I'm in my 4th year of teaching in a small high school in Lancaster County, PA. My classes include biology, environmental science, and forensics. I created a Ning username last year and signed up for the One Comment a Day Ning but haven't really done anything with it. I’m currently enrolled in a Web 2.0 class through Wilkes University and am looking forward to learning more about the use of Web 2.0 tools in the classroom.

Hi! My name is Alison Snyder and I am a second grade teacher in Pennsylvania. I am in my fourth year of teaching. Three of those years I was in first grade and this year I am teaching second grade. I have a SMARTboard in my classroom and I am always looking for new and exciting activties or resources that I can use with my students.

My name is Sarah from Pittston PA. I am a second year special education teacher for an Intermediate Unit. I teach a small class of physical support/multiple handicapped students. I am currently enrolled in an online course through Wilkes University working towards my Master's in Instructional Media.
I am an elementary library media specialist in WI. I teach pre-k and first through fifth grade students in the library setting and do a lot of technology assistance and training with teachers and students.
My name is Heather and I am a Reading Specialist at a suburban middle school in Pennsylvania. I teach students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. Currently my students are using Edmodo (for homework, links, etc.), Glogster (independent reading glogs, summaries, etc.), Blabberize (reading fluency, summaries, characterization, etc.), and Animoto (video book talks, etc.), and GoodReads to record books read, books they want to read, and books their recommending to each other.
All of my students have IEP's, and despite reading disabilities, their motivation to read and share information, as well as their comprehension and decoding skills, increase each year, due in part to our use of Web 2.0 tools in class. The most exciting part--these are the students in my school who are the experts in all of the above listed tools! They are participating in various "special projects"--using Blabberize to recite seasonal themed poems, which are then projected in our Lifeskills class, creating book interview videos and uploading them into Glogster, developing Animotos, not only for their reading projects, but also for Science, Social Studies, etc.! I am so proud of each and every one of my students!
I am always on the look out for new tools, tricks, and strategies to use with my students. Twitter has become my best friend, as a never-ending list of resources and ideas (best friend? more like an addiction!). I am very excited to be part of Classroom 2.0 so that I can find and share even more information, and further develop my PLN!
