Elluminate Session w/ Aimee Smith 3/27/07 This is what's left of my space from last year. I changed positions at work so I no longer use this space. This is my school's 21st Century School year 2 project. Middle school students are collaborating to write several genres of books. Come check it out! This is a blog that teaches how to use blogs in a classroom setting. Brandi Caldwell and I used this at the AETC Conference in June 2006. This blog was for some planning stages for the collaborative book project. I fear it is somewhat neglected.... This is a blog about my school's laptop initiative. I have a great deal of work to do to get it back up to date, but there is valuable information there!

I'm not sure if this is really relevant, but I wanted you to know a bit about me....
I am a laptop training coach at a small city system in Alabama (5 schools in all). I am a former middle school math teacher. I am also a fellow with the Alabama Best Practices Center and Microsoft Partners in Learning. I have had the privilege of working with Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach for a couple of years now, and have learned a great deal from her (and others she has introduced me to!). This is my second year as a virtual mentor and my second year as a teacher mentor at my school. I really enjoy both forms of mentoring, but I really love the flexibility of virtual mentoring, as well as being involved with such high caliber professionals, that you may not get on a local level.
