I love teaching and learning! I have taught for 24 years in both public and private schools. I have spent about 3-5 years in each of the elementary grades from 1st through 8th. I thrive on change and reflection of my educational practices. Currently, I am pursuing a service-learning cross-curricular approach. I have found that my students thrive because learning is more meaningful with this approach. I can reach beyond the classroom by providing "real-life" experiences.
Jane - wanted you to know that I was having trouble figuring out how to post a Photostory to the class blog and I knew you had done the cemetary one. As soon as I looked at an old post you sent me I figured out what I was doing horribly wrong (which was embarrasing it didn't occur to me sooner - as I overlooked the upload video button when creating posts - eek!). Just though I would let you know how you helped me...however inadvertently (spelt wrong but rushed this morning).
Jane - Thank you for leaving a post on Nicole's penguin project. She is a transfer student that is terminally shy and hard to bring out of her shell and you could tell that your comment just made her day. Thank you!
I actually have no idea--I don't friend people and always accept when they friend me. I would guess you could more easily 'find' someone from your friend list. Let me know if there is a better answer. haha! N
I like the cross curricular approach you have with the cemetary project. I think my timing was off with the composting (we are about to go into our state mandated writing test so prep is taking over). I figure this is my learning year for all things projects :)
I do science notebooking. I have a blog about it at www.sciencenotebooking.blogspot.com. Do you notebook?
