My name is Marie and I am from Southern Lancaster County in Pennsylvania. My area is primarily fields, farms, and Amish! I grew up here and came back to teach here as well. I am in my third year teaching second grade. Each year continues to get better and I am excited to now start implementing new ideas/technologies into my teaching practices.
I took an introductory course to Web 2.0 tools at a local college last summer so I have a general sense of what they are but I have not taken the time to research and plan how to implement them in my classroom. I hope that through this course I will be able to come up with creative ways to get my students interested in learning by means of technology.
As far as my personal interest, I would have to say that I love watching sports. I am a huge Penn State fan (as most are) and enjoy heading to State College often for football games. Everyone that knows me laughs at my sincere addiction to Penn State. Even my poor second graders laugh at it as I enter the classroom with something new that is Penn State!
I look forward to getting to know each of you as we work through this class together!
