I'm Molly Smith, an elementary and middle school teacher in the gifted program up here in Maine. I am just starting to explore the world of web 2.0 tools and am excited to incorporate as much as I can into my classroom. I can't wait to learn from others' ideas and collaborate with fellow teachers!
I'm from Essex, Vt. I am happily married and have three children. Two have graduated from Georgia Tech and one is a junior at Virginia Tech. My husband is a manager at a large company and a hopeless baseball fan who has built Wiffle ball scale replicas of Fenway Park and Wrigley Field in our backyard. I teach Spanish to high school students. I have always loved technology and have almost been able to keep up with my kids on technology until they went to college. This my classroom was the recipient of 25 handed down computers. I have been dabbling with blogging and tried some pen pal things (without much success), a little audacity. I would like to fully integrate technology but it is clear that I have a very long way to go.
I am a HUGE fan of collaborative learning communities and am trying build several for various niche needs. I love working with buisnesses trying to implement Web 2.0 and with schools/teachers trying to bring this technology into the classroom. I am an idea guy with the right resources to draw upon - professional public speaker, long-time trainer, local content developer, project management, musician, and all round - "mike" of all trades.
I live and work in Bellevue, WA. Feel free to drop me a line (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you'd like to share ideas our if you need help brainstorming for your next classroom assignment.
Greetings! I'm a secondary English teacher in rural SW Minnesota, US. My school is K-12, 450 students, all in one building. This is my 7th year here, and I love my job.
I've taught all grades 7-12 so far, plus electives like BritLit, AmLit, various composition courses, Advanced Public Speaking, Study Skills...and probably a few others. This year I'm teaching my favorite grades--8, 10, and 12--plus AP English Language & Composition (for the 3rd year).
I've coached Knowledge Bowl and Speech in the past, but now I'm down to coaching only (well, it's still five months' worth of season) Mock Trial...and this is my 5th year at that, after we started the program at our school.

Hello everyone. I'm Yvonne Osborn and I'm a Primary Visual Arts Teacher at Taylors Lakes in Melbourne, Australia. I am passionate about teaching and learning, particularly in the Visual Arts. I have a blog at http://www.tlpsart.edublogs.org . I am interested in hearing from Visual Arts teachers who are fortunate to have an Interactive Whiteboard in their Art Room. Oh to be so lucky.
