Hi Everyone!

This is my first year as a kindergarten teacher and I am absolutely loving my position. I grew up in State College, PA and graduated from Juniata College (In Huntingdon, PA) with a B.S. in Elementary Education. After graduating in 2010, I taught after-school enrichment programs before being hired as a full time elementary teacher in the area. This year has been quite an experience and I have learned a great deal.

I do not have a whole lot of experience using Web 2.0 technologies in the classroom setting. I have Facebook and Instagram accounts for personal use. I’ve come across a lot of wonderful resources from Pinterest and TeachersPayTeachers. I am fortunate enough to have a SMART board in my classroom and I am always looking for new ways to incorporate different technologies in my teaching. I am looking forward to sharing resources and knowledge with everyone throughout this course!

Hello all!

My name is Courtney and I’m a social studies teacher at the high school level.  I work in a school south of Pittsburgh, PA.  I teach high school students, mainly grades 9, 11, and 12, American Government, Sociology and an online Community Service course. I love the school I teach in and the students I teach!

I was a Penn State undergraduate student at main campus. I completed my degree in ’07.  I’m back taking master’s courses to complete a second degree with the university.

Because I am a part of our technology team at our high school, I am very familiar with Web 2.0 tools but look forward to learning more and sharing them with my colleagues! 🙂  I am currently working on a project with my 9th graders – who are creating wikispaces for their own political parties.

I look forward to spending the summer with all of you!
