Time has slipped by and the summer is but a dream... I am starting my fourth year of teaching and looking forward to a good year. BTSA is completed as well as all my SIOP training. This summer I also read Freeman and Freeman's book: Academic Language for English Language Learners and Struggling Readers (a decent and practical book) plus completed the in-services on advanced SDAIE and A Framework for Understanding Poverty - two VUSD sponsored events - excellent resources. Thanks to the team that put this together.
I have picked the theme from Oracle's Thinkquest regarding teamwork: think, connect, create, and share.

We "ran-away" to nearby Carlsbad and discovered a nearby paradise! :) Here is one sequence of the view from our room - stitched using Windows Live Photo Gallery - very easy to use...nice job Microsoft.
High School sweethearts to now...what a journey!
