Welcome Back to School

I would like to take this time to welcome you back to another school year. I am looking forward to working with you on integrating technology into your lessons. I can't wait to see your students faces light up with all the exciting technology tools they will be introduce to this year. Also I look forward to showing you new things to do with your classes. I will be using these newsletters to keep you informed of upcoming events at your campuses. Here's to a Great New School Year in Calhoun ISD!!!!!

Site Visits

I will be coming out for site visits starting August 31st. I would like to spend this time getting to know you in your classroom. I will pop my head in and say Hi while I am roaming the halls. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to ask when you see me. Currently I am going to visit JR - Monday, HJM - Tuesday, POC - Wednesday AM, and SEA - Wednesday PM. I will email you if this changes.

TechTime Training

I will be conducting TechTime Training during your conference periods. These will be short training sessions that you can attend at the beginning or end of your conference period for approximately 15 minutes. I will send out notifications of these events and what I will be offering for these sessions at a later date.

Creating Interactive Lessons

Starting this semester we are going to be working on creating interactive lessons to use in your classroom. I realize that there are probably some of you that are experts in this area and that is great we need your help. There are some who are new to these tools and need assistance so that is what my focus will be this coming semester. Don't worry I am not going to demonstrate it all in one setting. I am going to break it up into small chunks so that you will be able to utilize the software more effectively. I will be offering this training individually or in small groups. I can come during your conference periods or after school. I will be ready to set appointments up the week of September 8th. Feel free to set up your appointment in Eduphoria under Instructional Technology Work Orders.
