There was a song once perfomed by the Carpenters, a singing group from the 1970s, that was called Rainy Days and Mondays. In the song, Karen Carpenter sang that rainy days and Mondays always get her down. Well today is a rainy Monday and in addition to having to work on a rainy Monday, my colleagues and I are busy pulling together documentation to prove that our division is using technology to enhance student learning. This is SO much fun. NOT! It's hard to recall all the wonderful things that teachers have done over the past few years with the students in order to help students grow. I guess classroom teachers have to stress about the success of their students on the SOL test so the least I can do is stress a little over this audit. My personal SOL test! Yay me!
Hi, my name is Melanie Lewis. I am an Instructional Technology Resource Teacher for Amherst County Public Schools, located in the beautiful state of Virginia. I LOVE my job! I get to work on my hobby, anything that has to do with computers. I get to work with teachers and students, and I am definitely a people person. Plus, I DO NOT have to give grades. Wonderful, huh? Let me know how I can help you better integrate technology into your classroom.

I know only one thing about the technology that awaits us in the future: We will find ways to tell stories with it. ~Jason Ohler
