Hi Ms. Smith. 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!

Hey, Rachel! Glad to see another high school English teacher on here! Are you struggling as much as I am to balance everything: familiarize yourself with all the new Web 2.0 tools, determine how and when to use them in class, keep up with the existing piles of papers that need grading, etc.

I'm just looking forward to summer so I can "play" a little without the pressure to get 70 To Kill a Mockingbird character analysis papers back to my freshmen. Arggh!

Welcome aboard!
