Where I've BEN!: Education

Happy New Year! Habari Gani! Prosperous Años! Peace and Blessings to you. It has BEN a Rigorous 2016! I have ventured from a daily License challenging  Classroom with a hint of student ignorance-attack/set-up-the Teacher environment, to a healing summer of unemployment.
During my Summer of 2016 I recall how I searched all summer(2015) for that job! This time my search was beyond Education and a bit more towards Communication. In order to truly be happy I had to be invoking some of my technology in whatever I did!
Technology assisted me with getting an interview for my next job. The job listing was INDEED online and it required that I submit a Portfolio. What a better way to demonstrate my technological experience than to submit a Digital Portfolio!


This led me to one of the best changes in Education that I've felt and experienced. I became an employee of another public school district and this time had better promises than my last district (small charter school). I became a Replacement Teacher for a Gifted and Talented program. 

That's the beauty of having a varied experience in Education. I spent (7) years as a Substitute earning my stripes in the NPS District.! Once I started my Alternate Route program, the rest was going to be easier...(at least I thought!). My added step to acquire a Masters of Science degree in Education paid off in the long run. I constantly use the various Web 2.0 software to help teach and teach students. My Broadcasting experience helped me to teach S.T.E.M. Just at the peak of my S.T.E.M. Teaching experience my role changed. Good-bye S.T.E.M., ..."Hello Kindergartners!"...
Look for my next post- - - Kindergarten my next adventure!

Peace and Blessings and Happy Holidays!
I bring you greetings from Los Angeles, California. It's been a vibrant month and CHANGE along with CHALLENGES has been rmy forte. To put it mildly, " Yo, I've BEN busy!"

Where have I BEN? Education, I have taught First grade to Eighth grade Gifted and talented within. a S.T.E.M. Lab. It was great because I got the opportunity to  introduce Podcasting to students and they did not disappoint.

With the Holidays among us my family and I are fortunate to get a away for Christmas. Our choice...Los Angeles. We're visiting Wessica!

Yes the Sun has risen and the morning has brought it's glow, but nothing has stopped over thousands of Educators from descending on to Atlantic City, New Jersey. Teachers, Administrators, Businesses, and educational software companies are about to experience the 2016 NJEA Teacher's Convention.

My journey began aboard the Vamderhoof Bus which departed from the Redwood School in West Orange, NJ. Departure time was scheduled for 8:00am but we gladly got on the road minutes later.

Thanks to the ECEA union and NJEA for presenting a Bus and the Convention in Atlantic City, NJ.
