Throughout this blog you will see the voices of two teachers. If you are new here, take a moment to get to know who we are. Look for Jenny's posts in red and Elizabeth's in blue.
Hi! My name is Jenny. I am a teacher. I teach 4th grade at Richmond Intermediate School in St. Charles, IL. I have been teaching there for the past 5 years. I enjoy looking for new ways to engage students through technology and rigorous activities. I am also a wife and a mom. I have been married to my husband, Jeff, for 6 years. We have a daughter, named Riley, and we are enjoying every moment with her! Over the past year, I have worked to find the balance between work and home and Google has helped me with just that.
Thank you for joining me on my blogging journey!
Hi! My name is Elizabeth. I am so excited to have you join us on our Google and Technology journey. I am a fourth grade teacher at Richmond Intermediate. Our school is unique amongst the district. Our uniqueness comes from have only 3rd through 5th grade students, having an additional 40 minutes a day where students take SciTech, and a foreign language, and being a 1 to 1 school. Right now we are utilizing iPads with our students but we are also piloting Chromebooks and have multiple class sets throughout the building. Our school is constantly innovating our instruction and finding new ways to reach our students. I have been teaching for eleven years, with fourth grade filling 9 of those years. When I am not teaching I love training for and competing in triathlons, writing, or spending my time with my three amazing blonde headed boys. My husband and I are kept busy by their constant curiosity and movement.
