My name is Hope and I teach high school math. I have been teaching at North Pole High School for the last 14 years. I love what I do. It can be stressful at times, but when I think about how I am able to connect with students, it all seems worthwhile. When I'm not teaching, I love doing things with my family, especially my daughters and dogs. They keep me young! "Who are You?"

Favorite Web 2.0 Tools

Here is a list of some of my favorite web 2.0 tools.

Web 2.0 Integration Project

I plan to create a blog site for my students. I want to create a question of the week that would require students to do a little research on a topic of choice and then post their findings and reflections.


Since I am very green at using these tools, I want to start simple so that I don't feel overwhelmed and want to quit.


I don't plan to have any formal assessments. I want to use this this as a way until I get a feel for what I'm doing. Something will probably pop into my head once I get started.
