Year in Review from the Trenches -- Making Headway
*I have integrated several new applications, sites, and tools into my personal and professional life. (Some listed at my new Presentations Site).
*Being named an Apple Distinguished Educator was the thrill of my career.
*I have been professionally enriched like never before from my Twitter and ADE networks (See Why Twitter).
*Facebook and this blog have generated , stimulating tech conversation with personal friends like @bridgers, Rick, aml, Katy. And Facebook has allowed me to begin lining up classroom visits from accomplished alumnae like Nadia and Monica.
*I launched three very stimulating collaborative projects: The Civil Rights/Liberties Wiki, the Congressional Simulation, and my favorite -- Blogs on Vlogs.
*I enjoyed delivering a number of in-service presentations (fully listed on my new presentations resumé). There is no better way to learn than through teaching others.
*In Resolved.... I announced the New Year's resolution to avoid checking a single "paper" at home for the entire school year. Resolution kept.
*Also Resolved.... was my determination to keep blogging. Forty-six posts since the resolution, I am still going strong.
*Rick Strobl and I have begun collaborating on Web Warriors, and the results have been gratifying.
But not all has been triumph in the trenches. Come back Wednesday for "Shell Shock".
