Blue Ribbon Blogging

Hey Kids,

Thanks so much for writing comments on the last Disney post.  I shared them with the participants at my blogging presentation, and I could see that they were visibly impressed with your writing as well as your thoughts.  They also really liked our ClustrMap and talked aloud about our 1800+ visitors.  They thought it was pretty cool just like we do.   They enjoyed your Christmas oral reports and the Teddy book also.  In fact, Mrs. Brennan asked for a copy of the Teddy Tours Venice book for her granddaughter.

Here are few more photos of what happened at the conference today.  Our first speaker was Mrs. Deborah Phelps, the mother of Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps.  She has been an educator for over 30 years.  She has been a middle school principal.  Neat, huh?  I also attended a workshop about using iPads in the classroom; I will work on that over Christmas vacation so we can get that going in January.   The other session I attended was about inclusion.  That means that kids with all different learning abilities or disabilities come together in one classroom.  Tomorrow Mrs. Gunther, Mrs. Brennan and I are visiting a middle school, and then we have one more session before it’s time to come home.

If you were a teacher, what would you teach other teachers at a conference?

I miss you! See you Friday,

~Mrs. Donofrio

    • Thanks so much, Mr. School Board President! I’m so glad you stopped by to visit our blog and left us a note. I learned some neat new ideas from great teachers around the country and am ready to come back to Epiphany and have some fun with reading and writing. Merry Christmas to you as well!
