Yes, I'm still excited about going to Google Teacher Academy in just a few weeks. But while I wait for the learning ahead, I'm totally excited about working in a Google Apps for Education School. Why? Because. Google is awesome. It's like the convenient mart on the long road trip.

The Plight of the Innovator.... yeah, I wrote a blog post about salmon. :) http://venspired.com/the-plight-of-the-innovator/
Salmon. We've all seen photos of their plight. We've heard about how “small percentages” ever make it upstream. Most perish on their journey because they get stuck, starve to death, or get eaten by a ginormous hungry bear. The salmon that make it? They beat the odds, arriving gaunt, battered, ...

A personal journey that I share because someone, somewhere will read it and think "We are not alone." Be THAT teacher who reaches out. Be THAT friend who asks how you can help. Be THAT administrator who reaches across the table in meeting and tells a parent that you are there to understand and help, even if you don't know their journey. Reach out. Understand and remember, every parent in that chair is one who didn't ever expect to be there. Including me. Please read, share and think about these special and AMAZING kids.

I won’t convince you that you need a PLN. You have to decide that for yourself... http://venspired.com/?p=6614

Forever Learner. Collaborator. Sharpie Collector. Poster Maker. Eternal Optimist. I still wish on stars.
Introduction
Krissy Venosdale. The one who is obsessed with learning.  The one who has a huge heart for Space Camp, who got to be AT the White House when President Obama sent his first tweet, flew on the NASA ZeroG flight, and has a daughter who teaches me more about life than I teach her.  I dream of every kid having the opportunity to pursue their passions.  I'm always looking for the bright side and I'm always wondering if tech can making a learning experience more powerful... then I try it out.    

Inspired by the kid who said, "Mrs. V is not lucky -- she works hard for these opportunities." And I do work hard. Because it's what I believe in.  And I love that my students can see my heart most of all. 

You can find me on Twitter, on Facebook, or stop by my blog to see what learning I'm up to.

The Westview School is an amazing place and there really aren't enough words to describe what it has meant for our daughter to find a place that understands, supports, and helps her thrive. The social activities outside of class, including sports, clubs, camp, and lock-ins are a blessing to help your child gain social skills through fun activities with staff that cares. The faculty is wonderful, the administration is fantastic, and it has been an outstanding experience from us. Our daughter's only complaint is that she can't go to Westview forever. :) And that right there says so much.
