Happy Friday! It has been an exciting week at HHS. Teachers have been trained on Method Test Prep which is designed to give our students more opportunities to mesh classroom concepts with ACT test prep, Mrs. Busby has continued her discussion on grading with her Lunch and Learn sessions, technology is being integrated in new and innovate ways and teachers are working to build relationships with their students on a daily basis.
Today we will continue to highlight the connectedness that Twitter has brought to some of our faculty and staff in honor of Connected Educator Month. I love to learn how Twitter to connect and grow professionally! I also gave a challenge to our students and parents to tweet how Twitter has increased their feelings of connectedness to teachers and administrators at HHS. I have included examples below.
Have a great weekend! Go Bucs!

The two book chats this summer
really introduced me to Twitter more in depth. Everyone was so helpful in
helping me to understand the lingo and how to go about using Twitter. I
was encouraged to use it with my classes. After reading Teach Like a
Pirate, I wanted to do something different with my classes. I also
went to a PD on how to use Twitter the week before school. Ben Rigsby
actually gave me individual attention on how to set my classes up to do class
tweets. I usually do activities to introduce my students to Economics to
show them how relevant it is to their lives, so I decided to have a class tweet
on what they thought Economics was. Each class had their own tweet and
everyone enjoyed it. They even joked with me that I was going to be
“trending” that day! I plan to try that again this year with a different
topic. My technological level is in the middle and I always want to learn
how to be better. Holly and Jennifer have been so encouraging and helpful with
my technological endeavors! Kellye Self is also a wealth of information!
