Who I am and what I believe...

I am Jaime Speed. I have been a classroom teacher for 11 years and have a Masters Degree in Education and a math endorsement. I am also an Apple Distinguished Educator and a technology leader in my school and district.

Ok, so now that I have that out of the way...
  • I believe the best way to impact where our world is going is to inspire and prepare those that will be the future leaders.
  • I believe that teachers are more important than most people are willing to recognize.
  • I believe that we learn best from each other.
  • I believe that technology is the setting in which our students live. It knocks down the walls of the classroom and shows students that the world and their place in it can really be anywhere.
  • I believe that technology is not "fun" or an "add-on" or "something people are into"; it is a vital skill for all of our students.
I hope you will join me as I post integration ideas, tips, app reviews, my experiences (good and bad), questions, and various musings. I also hope you will post ideas that have worked for you. Collaboration is the best. I am so excited to have you around!
