I'm a mother of three beautiful ladies, which are all working on college degrees. I'm married to the love of my life. I've been teaching for a little over 20 years, and I still love it! I currently teach Academically or Intelligently Gifted elementary students, as well as, regular 4th grade students.
Hi Karen. I was wondering if you have educator contacts who would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!
Wouldn't that be exciting? In our system, textbook money can be easily re-allocated and decisions are school based. In other words, if you buy a textbook, it has to be the one that the county is adopting. If you don't want to buy a book, you can do with the money what you choose. We are considering the netbooks (which run about $400) each. I have been collecting research on the subject as well, and I'd be happy to pass that along to you. In fact, do you have a del.icio.us account. In fact, here are the links to a few things I've been reading (http://delicious.com/kellyhines1/text). Also, you should get on Twitter. I have developed an amazing and like-minded PLN that has enriched my teaching and learning in so many ways. You would love it! Look me up (http://www.twitter.com/kellyhines). Think about it and join.
Look forward to talking soon :) Hugs!
