  5. Colorado in Springtime

    I’ve been to Colorado several times over the years.  And over the next few months I will be there even more!  Before June, I think I will touch all four corners of the state!  From what I recall, Colorado weather in the spring can be tricky.  The calendar says it’s springtime, but you never know […]

  8. Enhancing Learning with DE Streaming-Collaboration

    My “where-have-you-been-all-my-life” relationship with Discovery Education began six years ago when I started teaching special education in a district who subscribed to Discovery Education Streaming services.   An epiphany! A wonder tool! A magic wand!  Well–OK, that might be a slight exaggeration of my feelings.  However, it is safe to say that I was definitely excited […]

    It is a snowy day in Denver, but things are warm and bright here at the Colorado Council International Reading Association conference.  Yesterday was the kick off with an eye opening speech and presentation by David Allington called “We can teach them all to read but will we?”  One of the more shocking statistics he […]

  12. What’s Your Tech Back-up Plan?

    This week was a borderline technological nightmare for some of the staff at my school, me included.  First the bulb on a projector attached to an interactive white board died with only half its estimated hours used.  The teacher had to wait 4 days for a replacement bulb to arrive.  Then the wireless projector in […]
