Webinar #2

Image
I presented my 2nd Webinar with SimpleK12 yesterday. I really like Webinars in that you are talking to a group that you really do not know how many people there are. It really takes away the "stage fright". However, in the stage frights place is the fear of technology not working when you need it to.

I made sure yesterday that I was ready to go. I was in my office about 45 minutes before the presentation. The computer was set up, headset plugged in and tested, and I was ready to roll....I thought earlier in the afternoon. So, about 20 minutes before my presentation I sat down to double check my headset. Which now did not seem to be working. Then my mouse broke and would not "click". Out came that mouse and in goes another....then a warning sign comes up on the computer and states that some error occurred. Oh, great! Well, maybe I can work without the mouse. However, the computer is locked up. I cannot click on anything. What do I do?! Now it is closer to 15-10 min…

Another school year

Classes are back in session for the semester! I have added a new course and become a part time professor/instructor. I am on my third year of teaching at the college! It is amazing to me that we moved back to Mac 3.5 years ago and I started working as the AD secretary. In these past years I have been secretary, worked with IT on the web, built online courses, and adjunct instructor. Often more than one of these title "hats" were worn at the same time. In fact I three bosses at one point!

Finally this year I have one boss and one title. Elementary Instructor in the Teacher Education Department! In 2005 I completed my Masters degree and left with a desire for working with teachers or preservice teachers. This is what I have dreamt about...and here I am! Amazing!
