When I went to college I was was one of the few people, I knew, who had not changed their major. There was no doubt in my mind that I would always work as a teacher, an educator in some capacity. There was no question that I would use technology as I was an audio/visual worker in high school. I have dreamt about working as a preschool teacher, a special education teacher, or elementary AND I WOULD BE GOOD.
My dreams did come true, I have worked at each level of education with the exception of post high school education, but I have conducted professional developments for teacher, online and in person. I have always been interested in technology and that is why when I renew my license this year I will add that endorsement to my license.
It is the end of the year! It has been a tough year. I have thought hard and long that there were ways I could manage each job, I could use technology. However, since I was not the technology coordinator, I didn’t have administrative rights, which made it difficult, if not impossible to use anything that was not school issued. The end is near. We have rough 3 weeks of school left this year and I will not return next year.
I subscribe to a blog written by Vicki Smith and she provides links to wonderful sites. She has a site that I would like to be part of my blog, but I also like to give my opinion of various sites.
