Welcome to the world of Jeannie!

  1. 1. Hello there! I may not be a genie, but I still work on granting wishes!
  2. 2. <ul><li>I teach at an alternative high school (adult education) located on a college campus. It’s great because our students have a lot of opportunities not available to students located on high school campuses. My first wish is to go a step further and integrate education and technology in our program. We already offer many online classes, but I want to push our program farther. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>We are starting to introduce blogging into our classrooms. Several classes have students receive and turn in homework assign- ments on blogs. And our office manager keeps up with our needs on her blog. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>I have also set up a blog for my Pre-health program ( ) so students can see if there is an up-coming event or to see the websites we’ve covered in the past. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>We have set up various workshops to introduce technology to classroom teachers. I set up a blogging workshop (our blog is located at ). Other planned workshop will be gaming (Scratch) and using cell phones in the classrooms (example – ). </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>I recently (January 2008) had a gastric bypass. As of today (4 March 2009), I’ve lost 203 lbs. I feel soooo much better. I’m still losing weight and working on becoming as healthy as I can. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>I’m not married, so I’m still looking for Mr. Right. I’ve been dating a great guy who is downright excited that I’m working on an advanced degree. How lucky am I??? </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>I have a B.S. and an M.S. in Biology, both from Georgia Southern University. </li></ul><ul><li>I have another M.S. This one is in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation from the University of Florida. </li></ul><ul><li>Now, I’m trying for a doctorate… </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>… therefore, I am excited about participating in UF’s Educational Technology program. I am looking forward to working, collaborating, and maybe even a little scheming ( for evil laugh, click the icon ) with all of you! Please feel free to contact me anytime! ( </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>I don’t think people laugh as much as they should. Laughing makes people feel better, mentally and physically. I began a small tradition of sending everyone a joke on Fridays. I title it the Friday Funny when I email it, so everyone recognizes it. People have began requesting to be on the Friday Funny mailing list and also submitting potential funnies to me. </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>… or is it??? Want to add your wishes here? I mean I am a Jeannie after all… </li></ul>
