This year so far…

This year so far has been so interesting! As a class we have had our ups and our downs but the potential that walks into this classroom everyday is amazing. The work that we have produced has garnered international recognition by way of students being showcased by the 100 Word Challenge, I have enjoyed being showcased by Maryland Society for Educational Technology (MSET) as well as being nominated for Outstanding Educator with the Use of Technology again for MSET. Risk tasking, stepping outside of our comfort zones and pushing ourselves is paramount for any growth. This year I have presented in front of educators from all over central Pennsylvania and in May I will be stepping in front of educators from all over Maryland to speak about how technology has benefited the growth of our students! I remain just as excited about the rest of the year as I was when it started, I cannot wait to see what the future will bring.

Fifth grade is more than half way over! I cannot believe all the work that we have done and still have to do. Remember when you post on your blog you are posting for the world to see. We have had visitors from 51 different countries this year! Make sure you put your best effort into everything that you post and that you meet our expectations. Don’t forget to include your stars, wishes and wonders when you are commenting on other blogs. As we move toward the end of the year and the end of your time in elementary school make sure you finish as strong as you started!
