  2. Welcome Kimberly. It is a bit quite here but we are working on an addition to the site.
  3. My name is Kimberly Watts. I have a BA in English and Literature and a Masters in English and Writing. I am an American but I have taught English in Mexico for a decade at a university and plenty of private schools (ESL teachers usually have multiple jobs in Mexico). I recently joined this site to network with other educators around the world and to look for teaching opportunities as I am working on a doctorate in Education with a specialty in English Language Learners. I want to work with different types of students to develop a learning program with curriculum for an L1, L2, and L3 (L1, English, and Spanish). I look forward to hearing from other teachers who might have advice or teaching opportunities abroad. Kimberly Watts
  4. Hello- I have been currently teaching overseas (Middle East/North Africa area) for the last four years and look forward to connecting with other educational professionals worldwide. I left the states after 23 years public school teaching with the hope that I would be able to broaden my professional experience. So far, I am disillusioned and especially during Covid I find myself very isolated and stuck. Hope to hear from others.

  7. Ending the school year is a great opportunity to see your students in a new way. This cool Hyperdoc is a fun way to encourage writing and creativity. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1SNoRoC3Zygiiy1e7QjdQwPe5fJCBlmkdJ1DIsAoy0vg/edit?usp=sharing
  8. Google Jamboard works fine, which has been my major online whiteboard app for years. students can pull up your whiteboard and interact with it if you let them. Simplifies things bc you don't have to share screens with them, and if you have students in class and virtual at the same time, you just draw on your screen at school and it shows up everywhere without screen sharing. I got a xp-pen drawing tablet . I think and I love it. Way better than a mouse, since I can write on the Google Jamboard app. You can draw or write with a mouse, but a tablet is much easier and more natural feeling.
  9. Here is a great resource for A Deep Unit of Character study based on the Units of Study. It lays out everything really well. https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1LFlRBOhuYNW9NH9Ah5Zgv_RswZKkgnntQY8G560xv4o/edit?usp=sharing
  10. The American Library Association announced winners of the nation’s outstanding children’s books this week. At the top of the list is “We Are Water Protectors,” a picture book created by two Indigenous women. It was illustrated by Tlingit artist Michaela Goade and written by Carole Lindstrom, Turtle Mountain Band of Ojibwe. The selection is history-making, marking the first time an Indigenous person has ever won the Caldecott Medal. The medal is the award for the most distinguished American children’s picture book. https://indiancountrytoday.com/news/the-first-indigenous-caldecott-medal-winner-MRB94wzxuUeVZ3EHKdzP1g
