I teach 8th grade U.S. History. I am a fourth-year teacher in a Title I school. We are fortunate to have quite a bit of classroom technology and a district that has a technology plan in place and supports teachers with constant training and options for adding to our teaching repertoire. I love tech and am always looking for new ways to integrate it into my curriculum. My concern is making sure that I am using tech as part of sound planning and teaching strategy and not just for the sake of technology. I am part of our district's Technology Master Teachers group, helping to intergrate technology into teaching throughout our district.

Kelli, My name is Leon Avrech in San Jose CA. I also taught 8th grade U.S. History as well as being ass't principal, principal, and mentor teacher. I think you would enjoy my book, "THINK YOU CAN TEACH? A SURVIVAL GUIDE FOR NEW MIDDLE SCHOOL TEACHERS". I am now retired and enjoyed my 37 yrs. in middle school. Technology all well and good, but the basics are important. Classroom Management, Yard Duty, Principal's Evaluation, Lesson Plans, etc. My book is available at amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com borders.com or from me. I will send you a signed book. I will pay shipping. Send $10. to Classroom P.O. Box 36036 San Jose, CA 95158
