Thank You DENSI!


Thank you DENSI! It was a special week that each of us will remember always! You put together a week unlike any other professional development that I’ve ever attended. It’s not a technology conference or an education conference, but yet it is. I never know exactly how to explain it to others that have never […]

DENSI 2013 Reflection


How do you describe the most incredible week of the year? Those that have been to DENSI know that it’s much more than a professional development week. I traveled to DENSI with Kim Adair and Mark Perlman and the trip was a blast. It was filled with music and laughter. We drove from Philadelphia, PA, […]

I love Pinterest and! I’ve been using both programs for over a year,  and some of my “categories”  have tons of information. Although it’s great to have the information, in many ways it’s a problem! For example, in Pinterest, I may have over 100 pins in a  board, and trying to find something can take a […]

What is ThingLink?


Thank you Patti Duncan! ThinkLink is a cool program where you use a picture and add links with information, video, audio, etc.!   In their words: What is ThingLink? ThingLink helps you create and discover rich images. Be creative! Make your images come alive with music, video, text, images, shops and more! Every image contains […]

Little Bird Tales


I’ve never been much of a blogger. I’m not one to write about myself or what I do, or what I’ve experienced. Then recently I had a brainstorm while thinking about DEN’s March Madness! While I don’t like writing about experiences, people might like to know about some of the technologies that I know and […]

DENSI @ Yellowstone


The group trip to Yellowstone was incredible. Yellowstone has always been on my bucket list and it did not disappoint! The scenery and colors were spectacular! We even had a little drama added to the trip when a spectator decided to try to move a bison out of the way of his view of Old […]

Summer Plans


Schools out, and I thought I’d sit back for a few days and chill (and work out in the gym) to get my head back into a good place (been a rough year!). Still a month to DENSI (can’t wait). Plenty of time, right?  That’s what I thought. The only plans I had for the […]

Goodbye to 8th Grade


Tomorrow night is our 8th grade graduation.  Nothing unusual, we have graduation every year.  This class, however, is special.  I started at The Independence School when this class was in 1st grade: the first time they came to the computer lab.  I’ve watched them grow up. I’ve taught them many of the technology skills they […]

What a DEN Star year!


I started my year as a STAR this past fall. YAY! Went to my first Tech or Treat in Harrisburg, hosted by Lance Rougeux! That alone could be the highlight of the year, but it gets better! In February, I attended the DEN pre-conference at Pete&C in Hershey, PA.  All the biggies were there–the day […]
