As the summer continues, it is important to go to your happy place. Sometimes my happy place is in front of a piece of bacon #searchmysiteforbacon or even just outside on the back deck. Regardless of your happy place, below is something I believe we can all relax with. Even if you just clicked it and walked away from your computer, you'll still have the lovely sounds of paradise. Enough talky talk. Enjoy...
Last summer (2016) I was invited to visit the fine educators in Echols County, GA, to provide training on the SMART Board, educational web 2.0 sites, and a few other Google solutions. We spent the day learning together, laughing together, and leaving just a bit smarter (I hope) after our session. They decided to bring me back on June 6th and 7th to deliver two specific professional learning opportunities:
The 2015-2016 year is basically over. With that, so are the Georgia Performance Standards (GPS) for our Georgia Studies class. Over the summer, I will be updating this site with ALL of the Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE). It will be amazing. It will be awesome. It will be "Excellent."
It is my intention to make it possible to teach from this website for the entire year, when it comes to Georgia Studies. Yes, the entire year! If you are a Georgia Studies teacher, and want to help out and share your "stuff" - please let me know. I'd be more than happy to give you the credit you deserve! This is a NEW Standards year and as we make our resources, it would make sense, to me, to share!
As I also teach English, my other major focus will be creating learning opportunities for my 8th grade English students. The same here if you want to share!
Have an enjoyable and relaxing summer break!
