If you would have asked me a couple of years ago where I expected to be at this point in my life I could not have predicted this. Although I have never been afraid of technology, I have never exactly embraced it either. I tend to approach new situations by observing and being extremely cautious. I have been reluctant to formally join the world of social media out of the desire to preserve my anonymity. It seems as if this is no longer an option as I continue on this journey towards a Masters in Education Technology.
In the fall I will be starting my 10th year teaching high school science. I am credentialed and have taught Earth Science, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Peer Connectors. This year I will be added a student run technology team to my duties of CSF Club adviser and Science Olympiad co-coach. The integration of technology into my classes is another challenge that I am facing as well. The implementation of 1:1 tablets, along with coursework in the Masters of Education Technology program has definitely helped me to reevaluate how and what I teach.
In this blog I hope to share with you my successes and failures as I try to balance teaching, advising, my family, and of course, technology!
