Time to get focused

Hello from Phoenix! I have been looking forward to participating in this institute for months and the time has finally come. I teach in a career and technical education high school in the inner city and am looking forward to starting a journalism program at my school next year. We do not have a newspaper and very few resources to get started, but I am ready to take on the challenge! I hope to learn all about the programs/classes that you already teach and plan to take everything from this experience to build a solid foundation for our newspaper.

I can't wait to meet all of you and get this experience started. See you soon.

  1. Seconded on the excitement of meeting everyone and getting started. I can't believe there are only two days left in the week. I still have to get everything ready!

  2. Malika, I teach as well in a rural high school--I have virtually NO budget. (Maybe I use 75.00/year) Let's put our brains together and churn out some ideas!!!!
