Day One

Date July 29, 2008

I had mixed feelings about today, but once I got into it all was good. I am so use to working with Mrs Crabtree that I don’t remember to tell Mrs Deakin some things. I hope I don’t forget anything! For example, tonight I added my kiddies to the Google Calendar but didn’t add hers. […]

One day left

Date July 27, 2008

Monday students return to school. This week we spent working in our rooms, meeting people, having meetings, and planning. Mrs Deakin and I spent time developing our course; she has a strong background in writing, so I’m glad we found ways to infuse that into the AP curriculum. It doesn’t seem like we have too […]

Date July 18, 2008

Got a new phone this week, and I’ve had some ups and downs with it that I will chronicle here. I’ve been truly trying to find the perfect smartphone for me, and I’ve come close in the last year or so. For example, I had a Sprint 8700 that I thought was pretty cool, since […]

Google Apps for the classroom

Date July 18, 2008

Shelley Rodrigo and I have worked on a presentation on Google Apps, which I am ready to adapt, develop, update and add to. It’s a work in progress, but here’s what I have so far. I am running it by a few colleagues tomorrow as a sort of preview to larger things down the road, […]

Thank you, Mr. Adams

Thank you, Mr Adams from Devon Adams on Vimeo. My students “borrowed” my MacBookPro and made me an “End of the Year” video in May 2008. I found it today. 🙂
