Today I read an entry from Mr. Fisch's blog, The Fischbowl, dated October 7, 2009 entitled, "Anne Smith One of 20 to watch". In his post, Mr. Fisch tells us that, one of our very own, Mrs. Smith is one of twenty teachers to watch, IN THE COUNTRY. She is being honored because she is finding different and unique ways for her student to use technology in her classroom.
This is important for the Littleton School District because they are being noticed for the kinds of teachers that they are hiring. This is important to Arapahoe High School because they have teachers like this on the staff. This is important for education because Ms. Smith is trying to get her students to be better learners through using technology. This is mostly important to me because Mrs. Smith is my English teacher.
In our 1st hour class, Smith is helping us become better writers and thinkers by using different tools of technology including: blogger, google earth, wordle, and google reader among others. I do think that her philosophy has helped me be better and less afraid of writing. WAY TO GO SMITH!
