I am in my 7th year of teaching -- I currently teach 8th grade Language Arts and 6th/7th/8th Service-Learning. I am also working on my second Masters Degree -- I have one in Teaching Reading and now I am hard at work on my TESOL one -- just started it last October, so I won't be done for 6 more months. I do it all on line, so that I can do everything else that I like to do.

Did you know that the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) national conference will be Nov. 2010 in Orlando? If you would like to submit a session -- sharing your experiences in reading, TESOL, technology or a combination -- the deadline is Jan. 12. Go to their website to see the categories etc.: www.ncte.org.
Our Brainyflix video contest just ended, and I wanted to thank you for helping us get the word out. We got 800 submissions from across the country!
That said, MIT was really happy with the results and will let us run another contest, so we're going for it! But this time, we're gonna have kids create Brainypics flashcards - which are images and sentences paired up with a one of our SAT/ACT words. The contest ends May 22nd, and there'll be iTunes and a cash prize like last time. To boot, we'll double the payout if the kids can hit a certain goal. More details at brainyflix.com/main/contest_rules.
Do you mind passing my message along to students and your colleagues again?
