Ms.Baker Classroom Blog

For my second K-12 classroom blog i chose Ms. Baker 6th grade class at Barber Middle School. The link is After entering the page links are on the left for grades 6th 7th and 8th, i chose 6th after that you can chose a teacher from that grade level page you want to see. Under each teacher name you can choose see blog page or email that teacher. This teacher uses her blog page to let the parents know what the student did in class that day and if they have any work. So after she tells the parent what happen in class that day she puts at the end of the post if the student have homework or not so they can't lie. I think if i had a blog for my class this would defiantly be one of the ways i used it.

Trantwood Elementary School Blog

The blog site i found has the school 1st through 5th grade on it. The link to this site is On the site the teacher post blog to let other teacher and parents know whats going on in the classroom. I looking at it and a a lot of the parents and other teachers come and leave comments under the subject. If you want to leave a comment on the website it takes at least 36 hours for the comment to be approved. I think this was a good way to use a blog in the class room.

Shift Happens

That was a very interesting video it was a lot of interesting facts some of the stuff i was reading i could not believe. Like that China is predicted to be the country speaking the most english in 10 years. It is really amazing when you think about how far technology has came. It was amazing to see how long it took radio, t.v. and computers to reach 50 million people.
I can't believe that if all the members of Myspace lived in one country it would be the eight largest. After I watched the video I almost couldn't believe what i seen it was just so mind blowing. I was glad that i seen it it really opened my eyes to how much technology has grown. I can only imagine what our children will be doing and their children. If we have all this access to technology now i know our parent think we have came a long way.


ACESS stands for Alabama Connecting Classroom, Educators, and Students Statewide. This program started in 2006. It offers advance diploma course, dual enrollment courses, remediation courses, advanced placement courses, and other courses that the school may not offerer. The program is distant learning and the teacher who is teaching the course specializes it that subject. I never heard of this program before this class even though i graduated in 05 but i ask my sister and they don't have it at our high school. I think it is a pretty good program overall.

ALEX is a website that was built for students and teachers. When you first go to the web site it has eight different catorgories you can choose from. It has a course of study so you can know what your students need to be learning. You can choose from different lesson plans that may help you out. It has web links for students, teachers, and administrators. It has this link for Alabama Connecting Classroom, Educators and Students Statewide(ACCESS) which is distant learning for students in school. This is a really cool website which i think any teacher could find helpful.

I think when i finally begin teaching my own classroom that alex would be very helpful. Especially when it comes to lesson plans and things for the students to do on the computer. I can really see ALEX helping a me plan out my next day no matter what grade level I am teaching.

About Me

Well about me i am from Montgomery, Al I am down in mobile going to south because i just wanted to get out of Montgomery and move away from home. When i first came to South i thought it was going to be kind of boring but I have made a lot of new friends and we have fun all the time. I like playing basketball and football, I also like playing madden on my PlayStation. Mobile isn't as bad as the people who live here make it out to be, you just got to find something to do.
