Hi. I’m a lead high school teacher who brings in new technology and teaching ideas to my school and district. I present technology integration at workshops in my area, and I coach two different sports. I am on every committee at my school known to exist, and I’m the yearbook adviser, communications director and webmaster for my district.
In my spare time, I sing in a contemporary Christian band ONE, am a member of the praise team at my church, and I follow my 6th grade athletic son around to games or meets in multiple sports. When my college kid comes home for the occasional weekend, I hang out with her too. My maiden name is Ingalls, so I’m also a first cousin (three times removed) from Laura Ingalls Wilder, which means that writing is fun and perhaps a must in my family.
I spend a lot of my time helping other teachers in my own district, in districts where I’ve previously taught, and friends of mine in other districts. I spend so much time helping others that I thought writing a blog might be helpful. If I can lighten your load even a little, then my blog has served its purpose. And maybe, just maybe, the reflection and thought I put into the posts will also lighten my own load.
