I also want to point out that this is not my website. MTWP is part of the National Writing Project, a teachers-teaching-teachers professional development model that has completely changed my appproach to teaching and has given me avenues into areas of education that interested me, but that I had no idea how to break into. I'm honored to be a part of the organization, and even more so to be able to be so in a leadership role. My job as Co-Technology Liaison is to use technology to further the work of the Writing Project. Which, if you are a teacher, you need to be a part of. Today. (go to NWP.org to find a list of sites in your state) Objective number one was to create a website that would be interactive, could be used for both continuity and professional development, and act as a marketing tool for the organization. I think we have a good start on that (we already have four online applications to the Summer Institute!), but am excited to look for additional ways to support the work.
So, check out the site, and please leave me any feedback you can on it. It's not perfect, but I want it to be, and I need some other eyes on it.
Next up....Birthday Party planning! Avery will be 3 in just over 2 months...and I'm behind!
