ESL teacher at the University of Sheffield in the UK. Been a teacher for about 16 years, worked in over 12 countries in that time! Fascinated by technology, especially in language learning, and lucky to have access to so much at work (IWB, smart tablets, clickers, language labs). Particularly interested in mobile learning and write a blog on that subject. Looking forward to sharing on this site and learning new stuff from others.
I am new to Classroom 2.0. I took a course towards keeping my certification and this was one of the things we talked about. I am from Warrington, PA and I am a dual certified teacher in both enviromental and special education. I am looking for a new job around the Bucks/Montgomery/Philadelphia county area. My dream job is to teach environmental education by utilizing the schools campus. I also love community service projects, and I have organized numerous events including two to help hurricane victims in Miss. and Texas.
I am also a children's singer/song writer/author. I have performed for thousands of children in hundreds of concerts as Eco-Man. I have one story published, so far, called "The Perfect Stick," in Humpty Dumpty Magazine in March, 2009.
I would love to know how to get started in Web 2.0
Hello everyone - My name is Jennifer Brinson and although I've been a member of Classroom 2.0 for about a year, I have failed to really take advantage of what a great resource it is. I am an Instructional Coach at a high school in Allentown, Pennsylvania and am charged with helping teachers in my building integrate technology and academic literacy skills into their curriculums. I have a love of all things Web 2.0 and look forward to every opportunity to learn something new.
Hi. My name is Jennifer Thoman. I teach high school math at Northern Lebanon High School in Pennsylvania. I have a wide variety of classes ranging from Technical Algebra 1 to AP Calculus. I'm curious about what I'll be able to learn from this website! Hoping to incorporate more technology into my classroom.
I have co-taught Agebra and I have always approached the subject as a foreign language. So many times I have seen students fail because they simply don't understand the language of Algebra. I make them READ the book.
My name is Anne and I assist the Learning and Technology Coordinator here at our rural high school in south central Pennsylvania. We are always on the lookout for new technologies for the classroom and also to help our teachers become little more tech savvy! I am looking forward to learning and sharing here at Classroom 2.0.
The best thing I have discovered is a web site www.delicious.com it is a place that you can save all your book marks from the websites you visit. Then you tag the site so that you can find it later. The best thing about it is that you can network with other people looking at the same subjects (Tags) that you are.
For instance I was looking for plans for a deck to build. Easy with delicious.

Hi...My name is Matt Offenbecker. I am located in Bay City, Michigan, USA, and I currently teach technology in a high school of about 1400. One of my collegues introduced me to this website and I thought it would be a great place to get ideas and I also enjoy contributing to the advancement of technology.
I'm a huge Detroit Tigers fan...Spring Training is one of my favorite times of the year. My fingers are crossed and I'm hoping for a good season. Beyond that, I enjoy lazy man sports such as bowling, golf, and downhill skiing (I have to preface skiing with "downhill" in order for it to qualify as a lazy man sport. Cross country skiing is certainly not for the lazy!)
My wife and I have two great kids that refuse to sleep at night, but are wonderful anyhow! Our son is three and half. Just recently, he made friends with the potty, so we're thrilled about that. Our daughter is almost one and is just starting to walk. Dangerous.
