Hello Fellow Educators,
I am Valerie Burton, an English Teacher from Jefferson Parish Schools and I blog. I require that my students blog. I feel that the tools of the 21st century have allowed us an unlimited amount of potential to reach young adults. Blogging is a way of starting online conversations about important issues. (Or issues that are important to them although they might not see important to us.)
On this blog, you will find varieties of topics for your students to respond to. I want to open up a forum that allows students across the area to begin to share and reflect about their lives and the world around them.
