SET THE HOOK
For anyone out there that has gone fishing, it is a whole lot like teaching. As a kid, I loved going down to the creek near the rock quarry with my dad and my friends to see what we could catch. It wasn't always a great day of catching, but the fishing part was a blast. The stories we told, the fun we had, and the experience of it all made the whole journey worth it. Before I began my teaching career, I had no idea what my life path would be like. Other than a professional baseball player, there really wasn't anything out there that really hooked me in. After graduation, I interviewed for a teaching position and, since 2006, I'm still at it.
This site is dedicated to helping you set the hook with technology. It might be a video that demonstrates your standard being applied in a real life setting. It might be a screencast of a step-by-step solution to a problem. It might be a blog that provides testimony and anecdotes to prepare you for what is to come. It might be a lesson sample with the integration of technology throughout. Whatever it is, I hope that you find it useful.
If you have any questions about any of the content on this page, or would like to be my "fishing" buddy, please feel free to email me or follow me! You can also check out another site that I own and team up with other teachers within my school district that offers a plethora of app tutorials, app of the week, blog, and so much more!
