I love my job!!!

My new job began one month ago, and it is so much fun that I do not feel as if I am working! I am a math specialist for the Alabama Math, Science, and Technology Initiative, also known as AMSTI. I am responsible for visiting approximately 25 schools and 75 teachers to support their use of AMSTI ideas and materials. They have already attended at least two weeks of summer training, so I am there for follow-up support for the teachers.

I have completed my first class towards my Master's Degree. I am working on a degree in Integrating Classroom Technology from Walden University. It is a lot of work, but I am learning some wonderful things.

I hope that this blog can become a place to share pedagogical ideas. My classroom blog will remain available, and I think I will continue to post classroom activities, links, etc., that might be useful to students or teachers. I am also planning to expand my wiki to include 5th through 8th grades. It is receiving quite a bit of traffic that I hope will continue.

Great days are ahead! I pray that God will use me in this new job to bring glory to Him as I go about North Alabama. Best wishes for a wonderful school year!

Sounds like you are having fun and smiling again. Nice to hear from you. Don't be a stranger.

Thanks, Chris! I have taken some extended "cave" time for myself, and I am now ready to rejoin the virtual "watering hole." Have you read Campfires in Cyberspace, by David Thornburg? (I can't remember how to link with tags...gotta brush up on my blogging skills!)

I can't wait to hear your K12 Online presentation! I know it will be awesome!

Ok, give me the dish on this degree! Is it online? Tell me more :)
 
Hey, Brandi!

It is all online...10 eight-week classes. I just started a class on New Technologies. The coursework is a mixture of technology and education classes. Lot's of familiar ideas from our 21st Century work. BTW, we missed you at Key Leaders today! How are the boys?
 
So glad to hear you love your new job! I've been wondering how you were doing but haven't had a minute to really sit down and talk with you (I'm always wrangling kids and trying to get out the door!)

Anyway, so so happy for you!

Just wanted to let you know "I was here".
