Hi, my name is Katie. I a from Kansas City. I teach 8th and 9th grade transition, math and science. I teach at an alternative school, therefor it is small. There is only one teacher of each discipline, the other transition teacher, and me (of course).  Of these teacher, no one else teaches 8th grade math and science. So it will be nice to have a bigger community to be involved in. I am really excited to get to collaborate with fellow science and math teachers.

Hi all! I'm Melissa Johnston from Mont Belvieu, Texas. I teach 6th grade language arts and computer technology at Barbers Hill Intermediate campus of 5th and 6th grade students. Our 6th graders participate in a one-to-one netbook program, and it is fantastic!


Would love to share ideas and collaborate with others. Also interested in teaching/interning abroad. You can find me at  and my class at


Have a great school year!

 Dear Melissa, I am copying this message for you. I hope you are all well and have a wonderful school year. I am writing to tell you that we are beginning our peace project for the year in honor of the United Nations International Peace day on September 21st, 2011

We invite our friends from around the world to participate in our project by writing about peace at your school, towns, city or countries. Since I am also the project director of the GVC Clubhouse there two ways in which you can send project. If you use the clubhouse wiki then please:

Go to New Page and create a page called Peace - and add your school's name or organization. TAG the page: peace, and it will appear on the wiki menu.  OR send your text, images or videos to to post on the Global Dreamers  website Peace 2011-project. See Peace Archive

We are sharing our work with the Global Virtual Classroom and hope to have a great collaboration with all of the wonderful educators and kids from around the world.

Please join us. Wishing everyone a great year and looking forward to hearing from all of you,.
