To all my new students - all 6th, 7th, and 8th graders as well as high school French students - welcome back to school and welcome to my classes!
I'm excited to be back teaching junior high and high school classes at Tok School after 3 years of trying out a few other things, like teaching new teachers to teach, and teaching the 3rd grade! I loved those things, but junior high is where my heart has always been and I am looking forward to a great year ahead of us!
I am also very excited to be a part of the one-to-one laptop program in our junior high at Tok School. One thing I've always been really enthusiastic about is using technology in my classes. During the past 3 years that I've been out of the junior high, a lot has changed about how technology is being used in classrooms and I've learned a whole lot! Last year my high school French class got a little taste of what we could do with technology - and this year I have big things planned - you will like it - I promise!
Continue to check this blog site as it will be "information central" for all of my classes this year. Each of my classes will have its own wiki - and the links to those wikis are on this blog page - it's important!
