Flying High

It's been an excellent week, and here are a few examples why:

I met with MS Science teachers about CPS Responders & had some nice feedback about using them in the classrooms.

I've enrolled another elementary teacher with the CPS Responders & she is soooo excited and motivated.

I've passed my new CPS software upgrade woes off to e-instruction.

Fourth grade Tag students and I have successfully experimented with Google Sites.

All my Standards, Benchmarks, and Core Indicators for the Middle School Technology classes have successfully been added to Pinnacle Global Scholar. has re-surfaced & has been a wonderful way to enroll more teachers...I just need to get a little more "solid" with it. (Weekend plans)

And finally, the State Accreditation team stated that the Technology Instructional Coaches were highlighted as a district area of success! Wow! What a great ending to the week.

Feeling Good!!

It always feels good when people recognize what you do. I'm not in this gig to seek out pats on the back, but when you applauded, it feels good. My posts over the last few weeks haven't been the most positive.
This week our school district had state accreditation visits. Through interviewing teachers and administrators, technology in curriculum was highlighted as a district area of success. What does this mean?? It means that teachers see and appreciate the help we can offer to implement technology in to their classroom instruction.
We are only going to grow from here. With more technology being pushed out soon, more and more teachers will have access to the tools some teachers are enjoying right now. This is a great end to our week!!

Online learning at it's finest

Seeing this story is what makes our jobs so exciting.
