Welcome Back!



Welcome back to a new year here at Scottsburg New Tech! I’m so excited for this year to start because we have so many great and exciting things planned for this year. We have three excellent new teachers that have inspired all of us to be better teachers and to think outside of the box.

I hope everyone had a great summer and is ready to get back into the swing of things. I’ve had a great summer because I was able to spend some quality time with my family and enjoy a vacation to Florida. Also, I attended three weddings that were absolutely beautiful. I cannot wait to hear about your summer and what you are excited about this coming up school year.

So here is your challenge… on your WordPress homepage include a quote the describes you and your goals in life. This should be professional and you need to make sure that you explain what it means to you. Anything that allows someone (an employer, college, etc) to see what kind of person you are and want to become. You will also need to include instructions for navigating your WordPress website.

Here are other items that you will need to create tabs for on your WordPress account:

  • Freshman Year (include all of your classes underneath this tab because you will be uploading projects that you are proud of here)
  • Book Challenge
  • About Me (include a professional picture and two paragraphs about your interests, goals, etc.)

Please have this finished by Friday, August 19th.


Planning for a New Year


The New Tech teachers and I visited Chicago last week for the annual New Tech conference. We collaborated with each other, met new teachers and made memories that will last a lifetime. I always feel so pumped for the new school year when I am around my colleagues. I LOVE my job and the people I work with here at SNTHS. I am so excited to start a new school year with a blank slate and new faces ready to learn PBL and the pillars of trust, respect, responsibility.

I know that the next few weeks might seem like a whirlwind, but know that you are a part of our family and we are getting ready to embark on an adventure together. Know that you always have someone here to talk to and never feel scared to let one of us know if you need help. I cannot wait to see where we will go on this adventure together!
