Hello to anyone that might be reading this blog. This first post will hopefully be informative about what kind of blog I hope this will be as well as what kind of website I hope that this is. Before I get to that though, I want to tell you a little bit about myself so that you have some background into who I am. I am a special education teacher currently working in a large urban city. I have a self-contained classroom which has students k-3 in it. I love working with them, they are such a joy to interact with on a daily basis. My teaching style is very interactive and also incorporates a ton of technology. It is my hope that my students have a great understanding of how to use technology in their daily lives and also to aide their own learning. It is also my hope that my students leave with good foundational skills in technology to help them compete in a highly competitive job market ripe with technology. My students interact with technology every single day and I will write another post detailing some of my favorite technologies for the classroom as well as websites and apps.
Now onto what I hope this blog and website will be. I hope that this website will be a great resource for many different stakeholders in the education of children. I hope that it is a great resource for not only the parents in my class or at my school, but also to parents all over the world. I also hope that it is a great resource for other teachers and those studying to be teachers. I want to make this website one that provides thoughtful and poignant information as well as useful conversation and discussion. More than anything I want it to be a place where people can learn and a place where people can come in order to get better at whatever it is they want to get better at, whether that be a teacher, a parent, or a student. Hopefully this website can be a place that provides an education, plain and simple.
