So much to do and so little time! Luckily, my husband and I enjoy the same hobbies (walking the dog, boating, and geeking out on Mac computers), so all the time I spend learning and preparing for teaching the best that I can so my students can be their best — in their future– is appreciated and understood.
It’s impossible to imagine what will be in the next few years because of the frequent advances and changes in technology, but I do know that my students need me to informed and engaged, leading with the educational transformation occurring right now. For them to be successful, they need guidance in the tools they choose to use. Hopefully, schools will allow those tools in the classroom so that I can –bring my instruction into that cloud to teach the content required in ways that inspire online responsibility and ethics in this new, very public world. So far, I am very supported; families and students engage and interact in our projects.
Indeed, so much to do and so little time; yet, to succeed at guiding learning, I must reflect on the issues, curriculum, pedagogy, and politics of teaching and learning. What is teaching? learning? I believe that to guide learners, I must be a learner…
And yet, there’s so much more to learn… reflecting on teaching and learning… and other passions the world offers.

Because I am a learner, reflecting on my journey, my thoughts and opinions change from time to time…a result of having an open mind. This blog is intended to provide a snapshot of my reflections in time, and as such, any thoughts and opinions expressed within out-of-date posts may not be the same, nor even similar, to those I may hold today.
And finally, because I am human and therefore not perfect, I may inadvertantly write something silly; please just point it out to me — it’s my silliness as a I continue my journey…
Please be patient with me; I’m still growing…
