Hello, Doreen,

Since Kim has given you a "tour," I'll simply say, "Hi, glad to have you on board."

Doreen - Sounds like an exciting program. I did an alternative license program many moons ago - I started out as a chemist. I'm really glad I made the change. If you have any specific questions, please don't hesitate to ask me or the group! Kim

Hi Doreen - Welcome aboard! I see you are a student - are working toward being a teacher? I wanted to tell you a little about MSP2 - we are using this NING network as a place where educators can connect with each other (through answers to profile questions and the advanced Members search) and also as a way to connect educators with exemplary resources and professional development opportunities.

If you look on the Main page - you'll see MSP2 resources in the upper left hand box - we have resource guides where we have sifted and sorted and contextualized resources on topics important to middle school math and science teachers, an archive of all of our past webinars, the ability to search the MSP2 collection, and pages of teacher and student opportunities and grants. Our newest resource guide is about Teaching With Trade Books and includes lessons for science AND math classes.

We have on the right side of the page our two project blogs - Resources for Math and Science and Connecting News. We also RSS feed the Free Technology for Teachers, Teach Engineering, and Science and Technology NYT blog feeds.

We've chosen our next book club selection - we'll meet online August 11 at 7pm to discuss Hanging Out, Messing Around, Geeking Out - hope you'll join us. Click here for more information.

Please don't hesitate to post a question or comment. We are always looking for feedback and new ideas for PD opportunities and people who would like to present. So glad you joined - Kim
