First day jitters

Okay I'm back. I'm writing a blog from my classroom for the very first time. Its really exciting to be back. I feel like I've been preparing for my students for three months. Aren't they lucky? I'm really overwhelmed though! Two days of putting my room together and last minute planning. I can't wait to see how awesome my room will look and how the technology tools will integrate to create a classroom full of thinking, wondering, reflecting...and learning!

My room is busting at the seams with technology! I have 8 desktop computers, 12 laptops in a cart I will share, my smartboard, my projector and all of the ideas I have crammed into my head about helping my students experience the world!

Watch out world Tonia Johnson's classes are coming on-line, learing is in progress...don't get in our way!

There is certainly a sense of anticipation isn't there? It IS exciting to be back with all of these new tools we've amassed. Good luck, I look forward to seeing the products you and your students create.

I love the enthusiasm. And just think, as jazzed as we all are to get the technology integrated into the classroom, the kids are even more ready and excited for this overdue change.

Tonia, you are too cool. I feel lucky to have access to your technology and ideas and I can't wait to collaborate with you on projects for the school. I feel like I am jumping into a pool when school starts. There is so much I want to do that I hope I stay afloat...

good luck on the 1st day. It feels like no matter how much time we have to prepare it's never enough. That's why it's always better to just hit the ground running and see what happens.
