I hope you enjoyed your long weekend and were able to charge your batteries to get ready for upcoming weeks.
I'm trying a new format for this month's newsletter. Thanks Mrs. Bridges for sharing your new find. SMORE is a super easy way to create newsletters https://www.smore.com. You can use it for free or buy an educator's account.
Until next time ~ Danita
This week's technology schedule
Thursday - Email/Calendar Refresher
Teacher Spotlight - Robert Newby
I am a 6th Grade Math teacher.
This is my 21 year in education - 17 years as a Teacher Assistant and 4 years as a Teacher.
The most exciting new technology idea I have tried in my classroom is Quia - I love that it will grade it for you.
If I were King of the World for a day and I could change anything in education, I would give teachers more pay and less meetings.
