May - A Month to Celebrate


This year completes our first year of the literacy and technology pilot. Friday, May 22, we met for the last time this year. This past year we have explored technology in a cross section of Maine schools, reviewed pertinent research, programs for use in the classroom, and created technology we piloted in our schools. Barbara Moody, Director of Title ll for the DOE, attended our meeting and helped us set goals for next year. Our number one priority for 2000-2010 will be to provide a variety of venues for staff development for all teachers in Maine regardless of their level of technology use or grade levels.
A special thank you goes out to all of the teachers who have given so freely of their time. Here is a list of members. Thank you for all of the teachers in Maine. We appreciate your level of professionalism.
