Welcome! September 2015


"ONLY CONNECT"... These two simple words (the epigraph to E.M. Foresters 1910 novel "Howard's End") have stuck with me since I was an undergrad at University studying English in the 1990's.

They sum up the essence of literacy &, I believe, the purpose of school.

We are communicators. We read, we write, we solve, we learn, we share through a wide variety of mediums.

The technology age has only enhanced this aspect of our human nature. We tweet. We blog. We Facebook.

We continue to read, write, learn and share in new ways and as such are becoming digital citizens.

This class blog will grow as this class grows through the year.

Please explore the site & let me know if you've any questions, concerns or comments! I always welcome feedback. My email is
