Welcome to my blog!
Let me give you a little history behind Tales of Teaching with Tech!
I did my student teaching in Northern California in a k/1 combo class and at Waldorf inspired charter school in fourth grade. I packed my bags and made a new home in the great Central Valley of California. I taught at a local charter school and then moved onto the high school realm. After teaching 9th and 10th graders, I realized elementary is where I need to be. (Even though there are moments where I miss the sassy wit of high schoolers... usually those moments last a few seconds!)
Recently hired as a third grade teacher at a 1:1 (one computer for every student) school. I was a little intimidated at first but was welcomed into a wonderful and helpful staff. I teach at a rural school that is surrounded by almond orchards and dairies. It is amazing to see such innovative happening with the leadership of a principal with such a strong tech vision, a staff who is 100% on board and students that are ready to learn in a new way.
I want to use my blog to showcase how I am teaching 1:1 daily, what resources I am using to get all my common core standards in and the pros and cons of apps and websites. I want to create a sounding board for teachers that are adopting technology in the their classrooms, share resources and you know.... teacher stuff! :)
