  1. 1. Sue Hart Family & Consumer Science Teacher So, What is it that you teach???
  2. 2. SO you are the cooking & sewing teacher….. Somehow that statement brings up an image of an elderly grandma whose only joy in life is to cook and sew for her family. When I am asked what it is that I teach, I know an explanation will usually follow. After all, first there was Home Economics (the Cooking & Sewing), then there was Home & Careers, and now it is Family & Consumer Sciences - even we FACS teachers get confused! By the way - it is a lot more than COOKING & SEWING these days. So just for the record I teach Gourmet Foods, Cultural Foods, Child Development, Adolescent Psych & Independent Living. .
  3. 3. Before TEAM…… <ul><li>I never had to worry about </li></ul><ul><li>getting home on time for Grey’s </li></ul><ul><li>Anatomy on Thursday night. My family </li></ul><ul><li>saw me more often( is that good or </li></ul><ul><li>bad? I will leave that up to you…) </li></ul><ul><li>and my dog didn’t bark at me when I </li></ul><ul><li>came home. Just kidding - she actually </li></ul><ul><li>barks at all of us every night as if she </li></ul><ul><li>has no idea who we are - I never said she is a smart dog but she is cute! </li></ul>HI mom! Bye mom!
  4. 4. My life now…… <ul><li>Learning how to navigate Dreamweaver!! </li></ul><ul><li>Collaborating at Ayse’s with great food and Dunkin’ Donuts. </li></ul><ul><li>Navigating Dreamweaver!!!! </li></ul><ul><li>Workshops </li></ul><ul><li>and……. </li></ul><ul><li>Hot Java! </li></ul>
  5. 5. More of my life now.. <ul><li>Good friends </li></ul><ul><li>Always knowing where I will be certain Thursday nights! </li></ul><ul><li>Less fear of technology! </li></ul><ul><li>And don’t forget navigating through Dreamweaver!!!! </li></ul>
  6. 6. Me after Dreamweaver… <ul><li>Notice the hair and the dark circles!! </li></ul>
  7. 7. Conquering Fears <ul><li>If you ask my family or my students </li></ul><ul><li>I can’t imagine they would say I </li></ul><ul><li>have a problem with talking in public </li></ul><ul><li>or anywhere else for that matter. However, </li></ul><ul><li>if you ask Nancy or anyone in my group </li></ul><ul><li>they will tell you that my heart was pounding, </li></ul><ul><li>my knees were knocking and I was a lovely </li></ul><ul><li>shade of green when I had to speak in front of </li></ul><ul><li>Class the first few times. Thankfully it is easier </li></ul><ul><li>now! </li></ul>
  8. 8. How do you spell success? <ul><li>I think it would be the development of a web quest that can actually be used by my students. </li></ul><ul><li>Which of course also meant using Dreamweaver!!! OH THOSE BUTTONS!! </li></ul>
  9. 9. The CAUSE <ul><li>A site where teachers, students, </li></ul><ul><li>and family members who have been </li></ul><ul><li>affected by cancer at some point in </li></ul><ul><li>their lives can turn to as a central </li></ul><ul><li>place to find links to resources within </li></ul><ul><li>their own communities. </li></ul><ul><li>We put together a really useful site but </li></ul><ul><li>the topic was too close to home for some </li></ul><ul><li>of us this year and way too heavy a subject! </li></ul>
  10. 10. WHAT I WANT TO LEARN <ul><li>How to use Web 2.0 tools successfully in at least one of my classes. </li></ul><ul><li>CSS </li></ul><ul><li>More about Digital Photography </li></ul><ul><li>And last but not least - that there is life after Dreamweaver! </li></ul>
