Thoughts on Thursday

Hello! Welcome to Tech and Teachability!

Hi guys! I am so beyond excited to launch my new blog Tech and Teachability!
This is so unbelievably amazing and I can't wait to share all sorts of fabulous new things with you!!
As you may or may not be aware, I am formerly known as Pride and Primary, but....................



I got a new job!! My principal has asked me to head up our school's Video Production/Media Arts department and I just couldn't say no!
A name change was required since I'm not "technically" primary anymore. 
I will miss my first grade babies, but as the program gets off its feet I will be offering technology classes to all of the grades K-6. Pride and Primary will not be going anywhere, but I have transferred all of those posts to this blog. 

So here we are! New name. New blog. New job. New school year. But I am making it the best school year EVER!

I will be teaching sixth graders all about Media Arts and Digital Literacy and Video Production. You can read about me freaking out over completely enjoying this new job {HERE}. I will also be teaching 5th and 6th keyboarding, and later on will be teaching computer skills to all grades eventually. We shall see. My school, Mayfair Laboratory School, is seriously the best school ever. We have the best team and we are the most fun.

With the new school year and the new blog, I hope to teach you lots of new things and to keep you entertained!

Here's some things to know about me: 

I am from the great state of Louisiana!
I love Louisiana, the food, my Tigers, my Saints, and all things in between! I currently live in Baton Rouge where I've been for the past three years. I grew up in Alexandria, about 2 hours northwest of here, which is a smallish city on the banks of the Red River. If you've ever driven south from Dallas or Arkansas to Baton Rouge or Nola, chances are you passed through Alexandria. I taught at a small private school there until I heard about the job at Mayfair Lab and I packed up and headed to our state capital. Never gonna leave now!
I love coffee. I drink it all the time. All. The. Time. In fact, if it's anytime before 6 pm and I don't have coffee, I am more than likely trying to signal you that's something is wrong. 
If you follow me on Instagram, you know my obsession with coffee. Mmmmmm.......

   I have a 15 year old daughter, Carly Summer, who is the joy of my life. She keeps me on my toes!
She will be a SOPHOMORE this year which I still can't believe. 
Yeah, she loves Benedict Cumberbatch and all things Sherlock. 

 I also like wine and I'm totally not sorry about it. 
I am also a major geek. Total nerd. 
Carly and I go to all the Marvel movies the day they come out - usually midnight showings (on school nights, yes) and we have soooooooo much fun!
  
I also love Game of Thrones and Gilmore Girls and The Flash and Arrow and Pretty Little Liars - I  may have a slight obsession with Netflix.....

But of course I have it under control. Completely. I do occasionally go outside, like to go to work and stuff. 

Alright, finally getting to the point of all this:
