Home Stretch

Forgive me for not blogging in the last month! I realize there are interested people out there that do come across my blog, and parents who would like to see how my efforts could further their children's education, but I still have yet to convince the students to pour some (notice I didn't say all) of their unscrupulous energy to use their thumbtop abilities to benefit their own education (and grades). For example, my wikispaces math setup at www.isd2134.wikispaces.com

Though we have a district wide ban on electronic device use during school hours, it simply amazes me the number of PARENTS who text/try to call their students DURING school hours, to give them messages of what to do, what siblings to care for, oh, and to turn the dishwasher on and take out the trash when they come home. Are these the same parents that tell "us" teachers to make sure they don't text Johnny or Suzy during the day??

Since this is the homestretch, I will not force the issue to try to make any new technological advances...but next year....

For the most part, I will try to keep making a few podcasts available on my rSchool Today teacher page at our school site (see previous reference).

Til I chalk again,

Mr. "Shel"
