Hi Kim,

     I am a Tech Coordinator in a New Hampshire, US, high school. I am currently taking a graduate course called "Global Educational Technology". I am looking for some insight to technology being used in education outside of the United States. Would you be willing to share some ed tech tool that you are using?

Hello Kim:
Im in Puerto Rico right now and checking we have a 12 hours difference. As a Spanish teacher made a change and started studying to become a school librarian. Reading your blog was very interesting. My husband is a Civil engineer and helps me with my studies and dreams to make my students better citizens.
Im interested in doing something with your kids.

Kim,

I believe you have done some work with Alecia Berman-Dry at St. John's Episcopal School. I used to work at St. John's but now am at The Key School in Annapolis, MD.

I teach an 8th Grade Global Studies class and am looking to form a partnership with middle school students somewhere in Asia/Oceania.

Would you be interested in pursuing this possiblity?

Yours,
Jonathan Oglesbee
