New to blogging so a few thoughts...
I have enjoyed reading many other blogs and have been very interested in starting my own. Do I really think that I am an interesting enough person for you to read my thoughts? Maybe. I am a primary computer teacher and to see my website visit this link. I am big into using SMARTBoards in the primary classroom and have done many trainings with teachers in the Waupaca, WI school district.
I have many interests with some being related to technology in education. I use Macintosh computers at the 2 schools I teach at and a pc at home. Over the summer I am learning the new Leopard operating system and the newest versions of iMovie, iDVD and garageband. Also, I am learning how to podcast and how to make animated movies using storytelling Alice.
Other things I like to do include discussing liberal politics, vegetable and flower gardening, reading novels for pleasure and spending time with my family. I am happily married for more than 20 years and have twin sons in college and a daughter in high school. I have 2 indoor/outdoor cats and a very sweet shih tzu named Tiki. She has kayaked with me and is my constant companion.
A new artist that I discovered and really like is Lizz Wright. Her music is hauntingly beautiful.
