Quote that's got me thinking:  "When teachers talk to teachers, good things happen." I'm not sure who to give credit to for this quote but I first heard it from Plano ISD's superintendent Dr. Binggeli during his first "speech" to the administrators in the d...

She Doesn't Hold it Against Us
We had an appointment with the doc today to discuss options moving forward regarding Avery's fight against cancer.  Despite her 14th round of chemo, her cancer doesn't seem to be affected much by it.  Perhaps I can update you in a later post about all of th...

Hello all! Attempting to set up a "MakerSpace" in my school. In that space, among many other things, I think it would be awesome to have 5 or so Google Cardboards. But, without a phone to use them with, they will be useless. Assuming my students don't have personal phones, have any of you had to purchase several Androids for their school? If so, is there a preferable way to do that? Am I on the right track here?
