Great Blog!

Notes from the Superintendent
This blog is maintanied by the Superintendent of Schools in a Virginia District. If only more could find the time to do this....

TimesDispatch.com | Reading, writing and blogging

TimesDispatch.com

When Chelsea Pleasants wants to know what her daughter is doing in school, she heads to the Internet.

With a few clicks of a mouse, Pleasants can navigate the Web site for Goochland County's Byrd Elementary School and access the Web log kept by her daughter's third-grade teacher, Ellen Robinson.

As all Goochland teachers have been required to do this year, Robinson keeps a school district-sponsored Web log, or blog -- a kind of diary of her class's activities.

Pandora

Like music? I always like to have it playing but to avoid disrupting others in my office, I wear a headset. I like the SONY ones the best.

Pandora is a fantastic site where you can create up to 100 of your own radio stations...FREE! Make sure you read how it works and what you have to do to create your stations. Yes, you have to register. No, you don't get any junk mail from them.
