Moodle - By: Ty Smith
Moodle is a site used by the Warren County Career Center to connect students with their teachers in a easy way, similar to edline. It allows teachers to post connections for other websites, such as the online textbook. Also, it allows students to send homework and classwork directly to the teacher. Thus Moodle eliminates some of the need for paper and is an easier method of collecting, and storing assignments. We used Moodle to access the Teaching textbook, and to send some of our class work such as the results of the personality test.

About Miss Snider- By: Trey Morgan
Who is Miss Snider? The question of Lebanon Warriors here at Lebanon High. Is she just a new teacher from the Career Center or just simply a new face? This all about her. For Miss Snider the faces that influence her teaching today include Mrs.Brock, Mr. Batty, and Mr. McCarty, her junior high and high school teachers. Miss Snider was also active in high school sports and clubs and continues as a softball and volleyball player. The thought of being a teacher was always on her mind. Starting her education career she was the first class, among other seniors, of Teacher Academy at the Warren County Career Center in 2002; with the second year of the program at the whole state it would be a starting clear path of all the places that Snider will go. English was the prime subject of her studies. The reason being “I was never good at English class, and I wanted to teach it to make it more fun for the students,” Snider explained. Started out as loving and having a close connection with God in junior high, with her grandmother as a strong religious member in the family, by chance her pastor just happened to be her neighbor when she was growing up. She was curious about traveling and learning other cultures, with her mission trips to Spanish speaking countries, promoting her secondary subject of choice was teaching Spanish. Thus influencing her methods of teaching. Currently an Ordained Minister, she attends Freedom Worship Center in Franklin, Ohio.
