I attended Beyond the Chalk at the MT August Institute at the U of M this Summer with Dean and Jeff. I was so inspired that I came back and built my professional development plan for my current year teacher contract around some of their ideas. I offered to facilitate a “Tuesday Techies” group to our staff at our Pablo Elementary School. It is based on the “Slamdown” that was done at the closing of the TechKnowledgy workshop. I am out of my comfort zone and league with technology, but I am passionate that we need to be able to connect with our students and families in the manners in which they communicate. Thank you, Shon
