I am excited to see the light at the end of the proverbial tunnel in terms of this school year coming to an end! It has been a good year with many changes in our district and I am excited to recharge my batteries this summer and prepare for our upcoming year. With that said, I plan to participate as much as possible in the Twitter #langchat sessions and the Google+ Langcamp organized by Laura Sexton. Both offer great opportunities to connect with other world language educators from across the country and allow you to explore what you are passionate about pursuing in your professional career. I can’t wait to see how this summer unfolds and to learn new and exciting things to bring back with me in September! I will be packing my “backpack” full of new stuff!
This past week (4/23/13) I had the opportunity to present some information about Evernote to the Lapeer East HS staff. I feel that it went pretty well and was positively received by my colleagues.
This is the beginning of an “Evernote Experiment” for me that I plan to continue over the remainder of this year and next year. Converting all of my teaching materials into Evernote files is definitely going to take a massive amount of work. However, I am excited at the prospect of being able to share teaching materials with my students, their parents, and of course my colleagues and administrators.
I was inspired by Nicholas Provenzano’s Evernote presentation and I hope to gain more insight from his work as I continue over the next year.
