It is going to be an absolutely awesome year! Mark Twain teachers have spent some extra days this summer learning a lot of amazing ways to improve our teaching. I can't wait to try them out!
Also, thanks to a grant, we were able to purchase new Promethian Boards, which I am diligently trying to master so we have much more interactive learning going on in class.
We will also be receiving IPod touches. Each teacher will eventually have a class set. I am looking forward to finding many new and interesting ways to use them to improve student learning!!
