I got the job!

If you haven't noticed, the name and address for my blog has changed.  I was recently hired as a 7th grade Math Applications & Foundations teacher at a neighboring school district.  I am THRILLED!  Essentially this is a STEM position.  I am to teach the entire 7th grade about STEM through real-world projects!  How awesome is that!?!?!  The district has purchased a number of laptops and iPads for me to use, as well as a variety of K'NEX kits and FOS Science Kits.  As I head off for vacation soon, my hubby will find quite a few of these new "toys" in our vehicle to play with over our vacation. 

The reason I adjusted my blog is so that I can focus primarily on what I am teaching in terms of STEM projects and the activities I come across in my search for materials.  I will still be posting cool math stuff and general classroom ideas, but the focus will be on the integration of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics through project-based learning assignments.  Stay tuned for links and rubrics for projects I plan on using.  School starts August 27th, so I do not have a lot of time...
