I attended a couple of your sessions while you were at NCTIES in Raleigh.  I am a history teacher and wanted to know more about how to use Desmos in my American History class.  Last week I was able to glean lots of great info, but now it is all starting to run together.  

I am very interested in using Desmos for something more than Math, however, I am not able to find any sources to show me how to do this.  Can you help me?  Thank you for your time.

A fun story about Renee Klein

Hello - my name is Renee Klein, and I am from Mohawk HS. I know you've never heard of it - it is a tiny rural schoolnoutside Eugene. I teach language arts, social studies, special education, and competitive robotics. I currently have 12 middle school VEX IQ teams, 1 elementary VEX IQ team, and 3 high school VEX EDR teams. Robots robots robots! 💖 We are doing phenomenally well this year - I have 3 teams who qualified for Nationals this year, so we are off to Iowa in April for competition! Woo! 

My take aways

I love the resources and Talk Move folder provided. Great resources and information that ties directly into a district level PD that we are running with elementary teachers!

This email/blog post is a great and easy way to start sharing with students and I see multiple opportunities to get students sharing in the classroom. That will be great motivation for students. 

K20 and OETC data base--great stuff!

My toolbox is growing. :)


Compliance within engagment

I want to expand on this idea of what is compliance in an engaged classroom. I feel Admin need to understand this to not stifle teacher creativity.
