This blog was originally created for an introductory class on educational technology. Chris puts up a blog post every now and again as he gains new experiences in education. This blog will most likely store the written experiences from student teaching in the future.
This electronic portfolio contains some of the writings Chris has created throughout his educational career. The writing artifacts come with a written reflection that traces the improvements he has made over time.
