Hi, I’m Cassie Allen Orr and I am from Arkansas in the United States. I have lived here all my life. I’ve taught Spanish at Highland High School for the past nine years. I also try to integrate technology as much as I can, and I have started trying some project based learning in my classes. Our school will be a new tech school next year, and I am part of the first wave of teachers who will be transitioning to that model. Right now we offer only two years of Spanish at our school. This year I have smaller groups of students who are taking Spanish II, and I thought it would be a good time to try the digital story project with them. I thought it would be a great opportunity for these students to practice their Spanish with other teens around the world. We have enjoyed hearing from you all so far, and we look forward to hearing more about you all!
HI, my name is Susan Dreger and I'm originally from Saskatchewan, Canada. I have been living in Catalonia, Spain for the past 20 years! I've taught both primary and secondary students over the years. At the moment I'm in a high school teaching English, however, I try to integrate technology as much as I can. This year I have three smaller groups which have quite a good level of English. I thought it could be a great chance for these students to do a project in order to meet other teens around the world, share some stories and practise English, ALL at the same time. Oh, and learn some new technologies too! I look forward to hearing from you all, teachers and students!
