Hi Currie,

As you can see, since school has been out I have not been online as much as I need to be here.

Tom is one of the teacher leaders on MSP2. If you look on the left side of the MAIN PAGE ... and scroll towards the bottom, you will see his name listed. (Tom Jenkins) If you click on his name, you should be able to see "Blog Posts" on the left side of his page. Another way to access them is through the "BLOGS" menu at the top of the page.

I was in Spartanburg today - and will be there again tomorrow.

Recently I ran into AL, the principal (I think) of the Spartanburg County alternative school. She told me about all the changes being made in District 7. She is moving into a different school due to these changes.

I look forward to being here more .. and learning about your work.

Welcome to MSP2! It is especially exciting to welcome another South Carolinian!!

You mention that you are very interested in STEM. You may be interested in the blogs by Tom, another of the teacher leaders. He is very involved in STEM education.

Since you are a media specialist, you may also be interested in the free webinar tomorrow afternoon about the presentation software Prezi.

Again, Welcome! Please let me know if I can help you with anything on the site.

Hi Currie
Welcome to MSP2!

There are a variety of resources available here, so I recommend you explore the site. Be sure to look at the resources on the home page. The NSDL site will take you to several sites that can help you in lesson planning, educational strategies, or opportunities to access other resources. If you have any questions, comments, or ideas to share, you can add those to the discussion boards.

There are also events you might be interested in. Events are recorded, so if you miss a one, you can check out the recorded session and add to the discussion boards. Let us know if there is something in particular you want us to address or topics and technologies you might want to learn about.

If you need any help or would like to see something added, just let us know.

Hi Currie,

Welcome to the MSP2 community! So glad you've joined us.

Have you had a chance to explore the site, yet? You'll find lesson ideas, digital resources for classroom use, and connections to current news items. Look at the left side of the Main page and you'll find the MSP2 Resources box with Math and Science Resource Guides as well as information on Getting Grants and Teacher Opportunities. We hope that members of the network (like you) will help us add content to these pages. On the right side of the Main page we have our two project blogs - Resources for Math and Science and Connecting News. We also RSS feed the Teach Engineering blog and two New York Times blog feeds.

We have several webinars every month on a variety of topics - curricular topics, teaching strategies and technology tools for use in the classroom to name just a few. You can get to the archived recordings of those by clicking on the Webinar Archive link. You can also see all our upcoming events by clicking on the Events tab. We also have a book club that meets periodically, check out the Book Club Group for more information on that.

We're also soon to be adding resources for youth - a series of virtual learning experiences for students. So plenty more to come!

Please send any ideas or feedback you have our way, your thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
