japan1.jpg (24821 bytes) Hello!  I am very excited about my new job this year.   I will be sharing a second grade class with Michelle Sowa.  In the mornings I'll be working in the four elementary schools as a computer resource teacher.  My job will be to help teachers integrate technology in their classrooms. During the afternoon I'll be teaching technology, math and thematic units to our second grade class.
Michelle will be teaching reading and language arts to our second grade students in the morning and working as a Reading Recovery teacher in the afternoon.

In addition to teaching at Comsewogue, I'll be giving staff development courses after school, maintaining this web site, writing stories, becoming more proficient in technology, coordinating collaborative Internet projects, presenting at technology conferences and assuming my responsibilities as a Franklin Institute Online Fellow.   Click here to see and hear me on a video.

I will try to find time to exercise and smell the roses!  At this time, I would like to thank my husband, David Silverman, for his wisdom, love, friendship and technological support.  I would also like to thank my daughter Rachel and son Gary for their encouragement.
