I am a (Late) Versatile Blogger

Finally, the Sunday I have  been waiting for, my family is busy with their own agendas, the house is pretty much in order and my favorite over sized leather chair is EMPTY , my laptop is fully charged and calling my name! Time to catch up on my blog reading and a LONG OVERDUE post! 

The Versatile Blogger!  

I was surprised to see Franki and MaryLee had bestowed upon me the honor of being a Versatile Blogger! Now to pay my respect to these wonderful ladies I have a few request to fulfill. 
#1 Thank the person (people) who nominated you and provide a link
back to their blog.
#2 Share 7 things about me
#3 Pass this award along to 15 other blogs that you have discovered.

Here are 7 Things about me:
1.  Just ten years ago I didn't even know how to turn on a computer, just one year ago I didn't exactly know what a blog was and I certainly didn't have a clue about Twitter! 
2. This is my 20th year in education, I started my teaching career as a Special Education teacher and after 11 years moved to Kindergarten where I taught for 3 years. I then taught second grade for one year and now I am honored to spend my days learning along side first graders who love learning as much as I do !
3. I am lucky enough to have the BEST professional development right inside my laptop and across the hall! 
4.  The first pd I attended on VoiceThread was out of protest, "What can I do on VoiceThread that I can't do easier and quicker with pencils and paper?"  VoiceThread opened my eyes, extended my classroom and expanded the possibilities for my kids! 
5.  VoiceThread has changed my teaching! My blog has been featured by VoiceThread and VoiceThread honored my school with a complimentary account to thank me for my work with VoiceThread.
6.  My humble blog post "Wanted a Global Classroom" has resulted in GlobalClassroom 2012 and changed my life.
7. I knew at age seven I wanted to be a teacher and can't imagine doing anything else!
