    What would you do without your technology?  The other day my bulb for my projector blew out.  It was at the end of the day so no classes were affected, but I was faced with the question: What am I going to do tomorrow?  I have no other board in my classroom other than my […]

  • Say Not in Grief: When a student leaves us. 03/26/2013

    It is with a sad heart that I write this post. Last night a brave and strong student died from a long battle with illness.  Robert was one of the strongest people I have ever met.  Over his two year battle he never once said I can’t do that with respect to anything.  Robert continued […]
