Hi! My name is Patti Barker and I am a 4th and 5th grade teacher in South Carolina. In the fall I will be looping up to 5th grade  with last year's class that I taught in 4th grade. I am very excited about this adventure. I am a huge fan of technology in the classroom. Bookmark this site as I share my adventures in teaching along with some tidbits and tips on using technology in the classroom.

Calling all SC Techies (and those in NC, GA and TN too)!




Well, I have already fallen off the resolution wagon! No, I did not eat my weight in Ben & Jerry's (although that sounds pretty good right now)....but, I have not kept up with my resolution to blog  at least 4 times a week. And it is only the first week of the year! Yikes!

In my defense, I was diagnosed with Bronchitis this week and have had zero energy.  While I was home from school -sick yesterday I came across a post on Facebook about the Upstate Technology Conference. It is a wonderful 2 day conference full of everything technology related for teachers/administrators that is put on by my school district each year. It is open to anyone who wants to attend (but I'll warn you, registration fills pretty quickly). I presented on blogging in the classroom last year, and plan to present again this year.

Here is the link to the website. Currently they are accepting proposals for presenters and you don't even have to be an employee of our school district to  present. Registration for attendees will open in mid-April.

It really is a great conference. If you are within driving distance of Greenville (SC), I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to attend a great technology conference.

    1. Hey Jessica-
      Sorry for the later reply...thanks for stopping by my blog. You should definitely try to make it to this conference since you are so close. It is definitely worth the time/effort/drive. I will be presenting so if you do come, drop by and introduce yourself.
