I am a second grade teacher in central North Carolina. I have taught kindergarten in the past, but I truly love second grade! I am married to the love of my life, and we have two beautiful girls. I earned my bachelor's degree in education and sociology from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in 2003. After teaching a few years, I returned to school to receive my Master's Degree in Elementary Education in 2009. I love working with children because they love life and each new day is full of promises!
Hey fellow bloggers. I have the wonderful opportunity to attend the NCTIES conference in Raleigh, NC today. As I'm listening to the keynote speaker, he has informed us of a wonderful website/blog that I have not heard of. It is called "Free Technology for Teachers", and it was created by Richard Byrne. This is an amazing site you can follow that gives FREE resources and lesson plans that incorporate technology into your classroom. Another great resource to use (that's FREE) I have found is Tagxedo. It is a very neat website that allows students to make word clouds about a topic. You can pick the shape you would like your word cloud to be in. Some students at my school just made some whales that were fantastic!!! I strongly recommend you check them out!
