About this blog

I’m Anne-Marie Gordon, a school library media specialist at a preK-5 elementary school in upstate NY. I earned my National Board certification in 2007. I adore wasting time online searching the web looking for innovative ways to use technology to improve my instruction.

I’m married to a wonderful teacher; I’m the mother of two college-age women who keep life interesting. My husband and I share a passion for gardening and cooking what we grow.

The otter? My brother was working with an elderly Scot. One day during a discussion of things cosmic, the old gentleman said, “Timmy–never forget you’re the otter of your fate.” Or so it sounded, to my brother’s American ears. Upon reflection, Tim decided author of your fate was perhaps the better interpretation.

Fate determination resting in the paws of semiaquatic mustelids was a lovely mental image, though.

This is my personal blog and the opinions expressed do not necessarily reflect the views of my school or school district.

  1. Hi Anne-Marie!

    Tell me about the new blog. It looks just like edublogs -without the annoying new ads. I have been thinking of becoming a paying user of edublogs to get rid of the ads. I hate the idea of migrating the blog yet again. Is this one a free blog? How certain are you that it will never go the way edublogs has chosen to go? Thanks in advance for any info you can give me!
