CyberSmart!Search results for digital citizenshipWhen I was a little girl I loved making books. It was one of my favorite things to do....all of it. I loved writing the story, drawing the illustrations, reading, and sharing them with others. I would have my mom staple pages of paper together, gather my crayons, pencil, and markers, and set off to find a place to create and write. I always had ideas that I wanted to write about. A lot of times my younger sister Heather would have a empty book with her also and together we would write great adventures. I loved writing books for others too. She always loved getting books, cards, and pictures of our adventures that we would take together. It is so special to read this book and hear the story through the young "me". I also wanted to be a teacher....and many times Heather and I played library where we pretended to be librarians of the most awesome library ever. As I got older, my love for drawing and writing grew. I went to Iowa State University to the College of Design first.

I love watching the figure skating, skiing, and snow boarding events. When I was little we watched it together as a family and I have really enjoyed following the summer and winter Olympics throughout the years. The fifth graders, along with all of our students, have been discussing the Olympics in their classrooms and after talking with one of the teachers, Kate Goodwin, about doing a research project with the kids, we decided this would be a great theme to focus on.
