I was a teacher for years, but was taken out by failed back surgery that also partially blinded me. Desperate to teach again, but stuck at home, I finally invented a way to teach online. I now teach struggling readers on Skype, and love it just as much as I did in the classroom.
I'm thrilled to know that teaching can be a part of my life for as long as I live—while I've still got my wits. ;)
YOu are inspiring to me, Paula. I am implementing a project called Globaldreamers. It is an international project and we collaborate with the Global Virtual Classroom Clubhouse. If you would like to join our peace project with them welcome! YOu can see it at Peace project and you can look at the menu on the side to see our work.
Yes, you have your wits. :-)

Hi I'm chief of things at MaxClass - a new social network / communication platform for schools (and parents). It's our dream that communication in and around school (at home!) will become much better.
We spent about a year developing MaxClass and now are seeing schools or individual classes join, which is really great. It's free for most uses, so I would love to see some of you try it out and especially give me feedback on MaxClass in your context.
If you think you can help us spread the word in your state or country, please let me know. But give it a spin first!
I am a 20 year teaching veteran who is greatly enjoying riding the edtech wave. I write several blogs and curations on the topic. I am always looking for what's new and really useful to classroom teachers. Look forward to sharing.
Hi Donna ,I hope you are all well and have a wonderful school year. I am writing to tell you that we are beginning our peace project for the year in honor of the United Nations International Peace day on September 21st, 2011
We invite our friends from around the world to participate in our project by writing about peace at your school, towns, city or countries. Since I am also the project director of the GVC Clubhouse there two ways in which you can send project. If you use the clubhouse wiki then please:
We are sharing our work with the Global Virtual Classroom and hope to have a great collaboration with all of the wonderful educators and kids from around the world.
