This morning, before school began, Christine Southard and I decided to try out our new webcam. So Christine sent out an SOS asking for friends to help us play and we got a great response. We spoke first with Ginger, who graciously turned on her camera even though it was early morning in Kansas (You looked fabulous, Ginger). We played around with the camera and had fun. Then David J. checked in from Texas. At this point, after we figured out how to get David into our call, we realized the webcam wouldn't work anymore. We're not giving up on that one. There must be a way to use the webcam during a conference call. Lastly, David Warlick joined in from North Carolina (Is that where you were, David?).
What fun we had talking with people around the country all before school began. And what opportunities this opens up for us with our students. Here it is almost the end of the school year (one more week to go) and, while I am ready for a rest, I am so excited about next year. I never imagined in September that I would have progressed so much during the year. I can't wait to see what next year has in store for me and my collaboration with Christine.
