This post brought to you by the letter Ss...

Ss is for setbacks, Smartboard, and Schroeder...

I bounced out of bed this morning because today was going to be THE DAY.  The day I got my superfabulous Smartboard.  Well...things don't always go as planned.  And long story short, I'm still Smartboardless.  Fingers crossed for later this week!

BUT!  Over the weekend, I scheduled a Smartboard Bootcamp session with Mrs. Schroeder over at The Schroeder Page because I love her blog and her Smartboard Bootcamp totally caught my eye.  Well, even though it was disappointing to not have one this morning... I'm so glad I had the opportunity to spend an hour with Mrs. Schroeder BEFORE I got my Smartboard.  She gave me the rundown on how to use Smart Notebook and taught me some fun tips and tricks!  Now I can take this time in limbo to really familiarize myself with the Notebook software and maybe even have some lessons made so I can hit the ground running when I'm finally all hooked up!  She got me super pumped for my Smartboard and I can already tell it's going to make a huge difference in student engagement in my classroom.  I can't wait!  And I may have a heart attack from the pent up excitement if I don't get hooked up soon!  If you just got a Smartboard or are getting one in the future, I totally recommend Bootcamp with Mrs. Schroeder...she'll have you ready to go in no time!

Wait...there's more!  Mrs. Schroeder is having a fun giveaway over at her blog!  She's giving away a super cute necklace.  Who doesn't love jewelry?  (And it's monogrammed, so you know I'm ALL OVER IT.)  Head on over and enter by Friday!
