ABOUT THE BLOG: The focus of this, my first "teacher blog," is the undertaking of one project: the creation of an interactive mini-museum and maker space in an empty classroom at my school. I know many teachers blog about their classroom experiences, and I've never felt I had much to add! My main purpose in sharing this experience is to hold myself accountable. Once shared publically, I am committed! Beyond that, I am hopeful that some colleagues may respond with suggestions, comments and thoughts that might encourage and help me in this process. I'm definitely OPEN to feedback!
ABOUT ME: Because of my unique teaching position, a project like this is not outside the realm of possibility. I work with students in grades K through 5 who are identified as academically gifted and talented. My classes are pull-out classes, and my 5th grade students are with me once a week on Thursdays. I've taught 34 years and I still have so much to learn! Class Blog Class Website
