My district is finishing the construction of a new co-located middle and high school that will have 1:1 technology 8-12, and 1:1 technology in the building for grades 6 and 7. In addition, we’ve implemented the new Massachusetts teacher evaluation system, created state mandated District Determined Measures, welcomed a new Subject Supervisor to my department, and otherwise survived the year at a full sprint.

I look forward to the summer where I will catch my breath from school- though I will be returning to my first love, camp, as Program Director this summer, so it isn’t really all that much of a “break” for me!

I promised last fall that I’d be posting my thoughts and work from MassCUE at Gillette. So, the first thing I’ll do here is share the presentation I delivered on the realities of using an iPad cart in my 8th grade Social Studies classrooms.
