The Revolving Door of Technology in Education

revolving-door

Let’s keep this relatively short and simple shall we? I’ve spent just a month shy of 10 years in education, and I feel as though some days I know just about as much as I did on day one in the teaching field.…

Allow Me to Introduce Myself

I let myself get caught up with several of the new Google+ Communities over Christmas break.
