Bonus! Wednesday Kitchen Creativity!

Wednesday supper was all about cleaning out the ice box.  I had odds and ends of things hanging around, and they needed to be gone!

I browned a pound of sweet Italian sausage in a skillet with 2 minced shallots.  I added chopped yellow squash and diced fresh tomatoes.  After the sausage had browned, I added the rest of a bottle of Presseco I had in the ice box (probably around 1/2 cup).  I let it hang out and reduce while I boiled a package of vacuum sealed gnocchi.  This particular batch I bought from Trader Joe's.  When all of the little pillows of goodness floated to the top, I added them with a little of their cooking liquid to the skillet with the sausage mixture.  I finished it by adding some minced fresh herbs (basil and oregano), and little fresh goat cheese.

Tuesday's Creative Adventure- Technology!

Tuesday and Wednesday I was busy facilitating conversations about technology at our district's June Technology Institute.

Technology has become one of my passions, and it was so rewarding to be able to sit with my fellow educators and talk about how technology can enhance our productivity and workflow.

Tuesday morning I sat down with other instructional coaches in our district.  On Wednesday, I sat down with teachers in our district who want to become more familiar with Google Classroom.  I am a huge fan of Google Classroom, and have been using it ever since it came on the scene.

If you are a classroom teacher, or anyone who does professional development, you should definitely check it out!
