First Day!

At the beginning of the school year, the children are anxious, worried, excited, and pretty much every emotion possible.

Today is like that for me! It's my first day of grad school, and I'm anxious, worried, and excited! I've got all my textbooks ready to pack into my bag. I still need to take off my chipping nail polish so that I can meet everyone looking much nicer. I may even paint my nails for this week!

I was introduced to a computer program called Evernote this past week. It's a place where you can take notes and pictures, and then the content syncs to all connected devices (like your iPhone or iPad!)

I plan on using it today to take notes in class, but you can use Evernote in many different ways, such as:

  • Making and checking off your grocery list
  • Planning supplies needed for a classroom party
  • Writing your classroom inventory (so it doesn't take up computer space!)
  • Storing all the fabulous ideas you find on teacher blogs!
  • Keeping notes during Professional Development workshops
  • Collaborating with your co-teacher next door to you and sharing documents with them
The list could go on and on! It has voice record, video record, and photo capture options as long as you have a webcam/microphone on your device. Very helpful!

You can go to their website by clicking here, and while you're at it, go download the free iPhone app!

I'm sorry I haven't blogged in a while. I have had something extra awesome occupying my time! I'm not sure if I'm allowed to tell about it at this point, but it has to do with design. I'm SO thrilled about it, and I have been working nonstop on projects for the team that I haven't stopped to think of new blog post ideas.

Let me know in the comments:

  1. Do you use Evernote?
  2. How do you or would you use Evernote?


  1. I'm not familiar with Evernote. I hope your experience today and over the next several weeks is wonderful. :)

  2. My husband and I have used Evernote for the past 2 years. We keep everything on it, dates, lists, to do notes. It's great that it sync's with our I pad's, I phone's and computers. It keeps us focused. And if he's shopping without me, the grocery list is right there. No more excuses. Enjoy it. There's a lot of features with it. Good luck with Grad School.

  3. This sure sounds like a cool app. Upon discovering your blog, I became your newest follower. I'm a brand-new, just-hired kindergarten teacher. I'll be checking out your tech tutorials for more super ideas. Please drop by my NEW blog and leave me a comment with your suggestions for it. Best wishes for great success in your grad program.


Leave me a sweet message! I love reading your thoughts! :)
