Participating with Breastfeeding USA Lake Norman Chapter

I have joined this group on Facebook where we can ask questions of other mothers in this area. We also have access to two certified counselors who will give us advice and share their own experiences. We also meet on Thursdays once a month to socialize in person. I love the online access paired with the social group that so many mothers crave after staying home all day with baby :)

Participating in Google Circles

In Google Circles I have created 3 circles to learn and participate in. I read and watch for articles in the PROFESSIONAL and PARENTING circles that I will share in the appropriate groups. The TECHNOLOGY IN EDUCATION circle is one I've created and added my co-workers who are also interested in expanding their knowledge of education in the classroom. We have discussed sharing articles, suggestions, and things created in our classrooms to our feed. By organizing them into a specific circle, I can access their suggestions for technology in education.

Long Term Goals

Technology in Education

  • Be a leader in my school setting.
  • Be at the front lines of technology so that other teachers will ask me for suggestions on what to implement in their classrooms when using technology.
  • Be a resource for colleagues where they feel they can always find new and innovative ideas.


  • Be a successful breastfeeding mother who sets goals for nurturing my child and meeting those long term goals.
  • Goal #1 exclusively breastfeed to 6 months.
  • If Goal #1 is met my next goal would be to make it to 1 year.
