California Dreamin’

California Dreamin’

One of the wonderful things about Twitter is that we are able to learn of opportunities that we otherwise would not have known about. This happened for me over our Spring Break. My friend, Judy Blakeney posted information about a “Strength- Based Summit” that was happening in San Bernardino and encouraged me and other local educators to get involved. I emailed one of the coordinators, and the next thing I knew, I was registered and providing information so that the…

No Coffee – Just Add Love

No Coffee – Just Add Love

When Mari, my sweet digi-daughter, asked me to write for her project, I said “YES!” I love to write and take far too little time in my days to put “pen to paper”. Though outside of my doodling, I don’t much use pen and paper anymore. I love using a computer to compose, and being able to cut and paste to move ideas and sentences around.  I also love the ability to let some writing “simmer” (a term I stole…

Come to the Table!

Come to the Table!

One of my favorite things to do during summer is to sit at the beach and read a professional book.

So, yesterday, as temperatures at home flirted with 105*, I took off to the beach with a friend who will be teaching TK next year,…

Vegas Bound!

Vegas Bound!

I have about 10 minutes to do this post before we officially arrive in Vegas, the land where it all began! I can write and drive…just kidding. MO is driving! At this time last year, we were without a “tribe”. We did not even know that tribes of our kind existed. As far we knew were we going to get a little information on how to use technology in education and come back to tell our principal that it was…

Dear Geeky Tribe

Dear Geeky Tribe

So, at the EdTechTeam GAFE Summit here in Temecula last weekend, Kate Petty‘s closing keynote mentioned finding “your tribe”. She mentioned how others, even family, scoff at our geekiness. Yes. Case in point: Yesterday (Thanksgiving) I woke up at 5:00 AM. I didn’t have to wake up at 5, but I did. Even though I’ve prepared MANY holiday meals at my house, this year I was a nervous wreck. Maybe because it’s the first one without my daddy, and I…
