Welcome, Bill Giasson!

We welcome our newest member of the Maine Literacy and Technology Committee, Bill Giasson, third grade teacher at Winthrop Grammar School.  Bill has always wanted to be a teacher.  He was on his way when he left high school, but got drafted.  After he completed his military duty, he went into scocial
work with kids for 15 years. At 40, Bill had the opportunity to go back to college and received his Masters in Education,  He achieved his goal at 44.

Bill's project with literacy and technology will be using the internet for social studies in order to communicate with other third graders around the world, learning about one another's culture. 

Stay tuned, we will share the process:)
