Profile Information

Betsye Sargnt
About Me:
I am founder, head, and teacher of The Phoenix School, a small private school in Salem, Massachusetts. I live in a small antique house with my two rescue dogs, Toby and Miss Raleigh who are also our school dogs. I have been in education for over 40 years, but still look forward to learning new things. After all, education is learning for life, isn't it?
Interest in Flat Connections
Ever since reading The World Is Flat, I have been interested in building the skills Friedman cited into our school. I am finding learning Web 2.0 skills fascinating and challenging and often look to my students for guidance. I am now interested in exploring the global connections that will help students understand how flat the world can really be.

Haven't heard anything new. I'm pretty sure that Nerine doesn't start school until the end of Sept. Matthew posted a new activity on this link: http://culturecollaboration.org/. Go there and check it out. I want to give you my school email address. Like everyone else, I'm extremely busy right now and don't always have time to read my Flat Classrooms comments. If there is something you want me to read right away, please feel free to email me...I'll reply faster. mfreeman@rcsnc.org

I have joined Matthew Stark's group. I thought you were going to do the same. Thanks for the update on Jackie's project. I didn't realize that her post was from last year until she sent me a message.
Let me know if you join Matthew's "global project" group.
