Hi everyone! I teach 6th grade social studies in Goochland, Virginia. I also am Social Studies Department Chair and Cheerleading Coach. One of my goals is integrating technology into the classroom in order to engage students.

Hey, everyone! My name is Terry and I teach sixth, seventh, and eighth, grade social studies in North Hollywood. Here's my website.
I just started a class blog experiment. There's no turning back!

I moved to the ms to teach reading/writing this year. I taught 3rd grade for 16 years, the last five or six in an eMINTS room with a lot of technology. I have now landed in a barren wasteland, as far as tech goes: not even a SMARTboard. I recently salvaged a couple of boxes of handhelds from a closet. I have never used handhelds before and am looking for resources and middle school level ideas. Anyone?

Another crazy middle school teacher. 7th and 8th grade language arts (English) and also 8th grade computer skills. 3 preps a day, plus coordinate with 7th grade computer teacher, so it's more like 4. My biggest problems is often getting other classroom teachers to use more technology so that kids get more cross-curricular work in their daily computer lab.

Hello, I'm an eighth grade English teacher. I'm new here and excited to exchange ideas with other middle school survivors teachers.

I am new to this web 2.0 stuff, but trying to move myself into the 21st century technology as a reading teacher...I am blogging with my 7th graders on a novel we are reading. They seem very excited but we are in the early stages....will give feedback on pitfalls and successes.

I am interested in connecting with a new and different group of people rather than the people I see every day. Always looking for new ideas and suggestions. Glad to be connected! cb
