• This year is going to be an amazing one. I can feel it! There are so many options available for online learning. Most of us have become online learners without ever realizing it. This generation was born for this experience having grown up with technology all around them. I hear parents saying, "He could work the tablet better than I could by the time he was 2 years old." My own children ask virtual assistants questions all day long and watch videos on how to this and that. These kids are SMART! 

    I will be working with students to hone their skills and knowledge in the areas of World Language, Literacy, and Social Studies. We will use the gift of technology to expand what we know and discover what we didn't know.
