The Wisconsin DEN LC has a new blogger – me! My name is Chad Lehman and I’ll be taking over the blogging duties here at the DEN Wisconsin LC blog. I’m new to the LC, but have a been a DEN member for almost a year. I’m really looking forward to learning more about the use of technology in the classroom. In addition to this blog, I have my own blog that I’ll continue posting to at least on a weekly basis. Once in a while, I’ll cross post, but hopefully that won’t happen too often.
A little about me – I’m currently an Library Media Specialist working in a K-5 public school in West Allis, Wisconsin. I previously taught third grade for eight years before moving to the library to become more involved with technology. On a weekly basis, I see all of the students at my school for one hour. Grades three through five come for a one hour block, splitting their time between the library and computer lab. The kindergarten through second graders come for 2 half hour classes – one in the library and one in the lab. Most of the time, I really like my position, but there are quite a few times I miss being a classroom teacher. Outside of school, I enjoy watching and playing just about all sports. The Wisconsin weather doesn’t allow me to golf as much as I’d like, but perhaps my family has a little to do with that as well. I have two elementary aged children who are starting to get into more and more activities, which makes me feel a little like a soccer mom when I cart them all over the place!
That’s about it for now, I hope you stop by on a fairly regular basis to check out what’s going on with the Wisconsin DEN LC!
