About Me
I have taught in the public school systems in Florida for 24 years. I started teaching 3rd grade, then 4th in Jacksonville, FL. I took time off and became a stay at home mom until my youngest started 5th grade. By that time, I was living in the Fabulous Florida Keys. I went back to teaching at Key Largo School, a K-8 program. In 1995, when my oldest was graduation from Florida State and my youngest was only a year behind, I went back to grad school. I moved to Tallahassee and completed my master's degree in Elementary Education with specialization in technology.
Upon returning to Key Largo, my principal, Mrs. Frances St.James, offered me the opportunity to become the Technology Resource Teacher for K-8. Key Largo School became a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence and in 2001 it was selected as one of 4 schools in the 9 southeastern states to become a part of the Bellsouth Power to Teach grant. As part of the Bellsouth team, I traveled to schools in NC, LA and FL to observe how technology was being integrated in the schools and what the impact was on student learning. I met Sara Armstrong from the George Lucas Foundation and worked with Dr. Ted Hasselbring from the University of Kentucky (a frequent presenter at the Florida Educational Technology Conference). It was a fantastic learning experience.
Now, I am living in Daytona Beach, FL and working at Southwestern Middle School in Deland, FL. I went back to the classroom and am teaching Exploratory Technology to 6th, 7th and 8th graders. We are currently working on the 2007-08 Technology Plan and looking for ways to integrate Web 2.0, Podcasting, etc., into our curriculum to motivate our students and maximize their learning experiences.
I look forward to hearing your ideas. Let's talk!!

Hi Ms. Tyree. I was wondering if your students would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. If not, perhaps you have some educator contacts you could direct me to. You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!

I'm sending out messages to everyone I know right now, and this classroom20 network is no exception. (I've also sent this out on other Ning networks you may be a part of.) My name is Marco Morales; I am a 20 year old college student from Olin College of Engineering. I am a part of a group of 6 Olin College students (we're in Needham,MA, and engineering students) who has taken a year off to work on an education related project. I found you when I searched for middle schools on classroom20, and since our project is specific to middle schools, I thought you might be interested! Our project is called AlightLearning, and this is our "short" project description:

Under the assumption that within ten years, the landscape of modern education will have fully integrated what we now define as new classroom media: video, online collaboration, open source curriculum and other web tools, we hope to pioneer a web software tool that acts as a platform for this new media, bringing the power of the web and its tools to students, teachers and parents in a secure, comfortable and innovative environment. Our goal is to have our free software at a pilot middle school by April 15th, 2008, continuing to develop and coordinate with our users to create a product that other schools want to pilot and use at their schools, while allowing individual teachers to implement this tool in their own classroom.

Our project, titled Alight Learning, is currently trying to win an idea competition on Ideablob.com You can find us at http://ideablob.com/3975. We would love your support in the form of a vote within the next couple days, but more importantly we'd love your feedback and comments. Our description on Ideablob is short, and even the one above hardly gets many of the issues we would like to take a stab at solving, but at least it's a start.

Feel free to email me back, check out alightlearning.com, anything you like!
