Welcome to my blog

This being the first post to my educational blog, I just wanted to share a few ideas I have for this blog... but I am in no way certain where this might take me.

I am interested mostly in connecting, collaborating, and communicating with other educators. I hope to share my resources as well as my successes and not-so-much successes that I encounter as a teacher.

I believe that technology has a great impact in our classrooms and in our students' lives, and my hope is that this blog can support and encourage me as a teacher, educating myself on the wisdom of the greats before me.

Here are some photos of sample projects. Click here for examples of student work.







Architecture and Area Project (Geometry)

Finally! I finished putting the final touches on my Architecture and Area project for Geometry.  My students completed this project for the first time back in March, but I was revising, reorganizing, and perfecting what I have so far.  There are so many extensions to this project, but I chose the ones I felt most suitable for my students.  Let me tell you more about this project (teacher resources at the bottom)...

Students work in pairs to build their own model home (physical model or digital model).  Not only do they use area formulas to calculate their square footage, but they also have to calculate how much it would cost to paint, tile, and carpet the home.  On top of that, I had my students do some algebra review by calculating the cost of their home, the selling price they desire, and finally the asking price.  Whew! 

Why I love this project:  The students were really into it.  Their reflections had nothing but awesome things to say about it such as, "This is the best thing…
