My blog posting for this class was overall, a lot of fun. I enjoyed creating my own blog page and ways to design it. This semester was intense for me, so it was hard trying to keep up with it every week, but it was still nice. The only problem I saw with this blog website was that on some Sundays, if I waited to post something at night, then it would say it was the next day when it really wasn’t. So maybe the timing was off and was on a different time zone.
This blog website is a great way for teachers to post their learning activities and other classroom lessons. If a lesson that was covered in class was very difficult for the students to comprehend, a teacher can post a few extra activities and games to make it easier for the students. This website can also keep parents and co-workers in tuned with the lessons that are presented with a particular class. Another good way to use this website is when a student has a project or study tips for other students (this will be for older students). It’ll get everyone involved and will be a start for online technology.

This design was made from the Tagxedo program and includes my philosophical views. I chose the tree outline because I feel it symbolizes growth, and that is a main goal of mine that I want to have in my future classroom.
For education, we were required to do a Prezi Presentation on Philosophy. At first, I was really confused on how to work the online power point but after a while I got the hang of it. I enjoyed working with it and it made the topic more interesting. I will definitely use this in the future for teaching and I know the students will love the fun virtual website.

I cannot wait to graduate and become a new teacher! There are many organizing techniques that I have found useful to apply to the classroom. Each day I will prepare a To Do List for the classroom and a Personal List for myself. Another way to organize the classroom would be to have a folder holder for each day of the week (except for Saturdays and Sundays since school will not be in session on those days). I will select 5 bright colors to represent each day and within those folder holders, I will put a few folders in them that contain: lesson plans, work sheets, tests notes, and other materials. Also, another good organizing tip I found was having plastic bins. I will store classroom books, school supplies, head sets, and other class materials that will be needed for classroom.
