A Bit of an Introduction

Welcome to my Instructional Technology Blog! This particular blog was initialized as a requirement of my EDUC2201 course. I'm very new to the concept of blogging, so I am looking forward to all that I will learn throughout this semester. I'm currently an Elementary Education major; however, I would ultimately like to teach education courses on a collegiate level. Whether I end up in an elementary or college class, I will need to have a good grasp on the technology available to me as an educator. I hope to gain that necessary knowledge from this course so that I will be more readily able to offer my students helpful technological tools to enhance their learning.

"Where I'm from" Poem

I am from the valley where creeks rise and fall, from Pepsi cola and iced tea on a hot summer's night.

I am from the grey house on the corner, with creaky steps and over a century old, filled with memories.

I am from the burning bush glowing in the midday sun, the daffodils that sprout in the springtime.

I am from game nights on the outside deck and loud,hearty laughs that fill those nights' air, from Lucille and MaryAnn and three generations of Williams.

I am from the house full of family on Christmas Eve and thankful for the quiet that comes the next morning.

From "I expect you to always do your best" and "I'll love you no matter what you choose to do".

I am from the white cross on the steeple down the street. Always searching, always seeking, always looking for life's truths.

I'm from Clarksburg, WV, from grilled hamburgers and pasta salad.

From double-trouble with my twin--my best friend, the sound of a guitar floating up the steps from my brother's room, and the love and loyalty of my dog who never leaves my side.

I am from the campfires at Seneca Rocks, fishing on the Mountain streams, and hunting in the fields at dusk.

I am from deep family ties and a love of the land that will hold me to this place,in body or mind, for all my life.
