Who I am
I'm a 7th and 8th grade teacher in the Edina Public School District, in Edina, Minnesota. Two-thirds of my teaching assignment is teaching intervention classes to students who are in the 15th to 40th percentile in their standardized test scores. These students are with me for twice as much instructional time, and I'm able to teach them at half the pace of a regular tracked class.
In 2011, I won a grant from our local ed fund for six iPad 2's for my classroom. My intent was to load up the iPad's with apps that would engage my students into meaningful learning that would provide another medium for learning.
This blog is a reflection upon my own learning and the learning that I've witnessed happening in my classroom!
