Welcome to our 5th grade classroom! This blog will be used for a variety of purposes. My first mission is to keep parents updated and informed about classroom events, assignments, etc. My second mission is to provide a way for others to see what and how we are learning. My third mission is to allow students to take an active role in their education. Often times, technology is handed to students without teaching them technique and etiquette. Should I put this on the Facebook? How do I maneuver a keyboard and mouse efficiently? What do I click to make this capitalized? Where is the address bar? Believe it or not, I have been asked all of those questions by students. Part of  what I want to accomplish this year (and for many years to come) is to let students see how technology should be used, and how technology gives us endless possibilities for learning.

Please visit soon to see how I am getting the classroom ready for my new students!
