I blog at Milobo's Musings
and at Scholastic's Tech Tutor
I podcast with Katie Morrow about teaching, learning and living with laptops at Always On (you can find us on iTunes too)
I store my presos and other stuff on my .mac website.
You can find my bookmarks on Del.icio.us.
I'm milobo on Twitter and mbourgeois on iChat.
I began my teaching career 20 years ago as an elementary classroom teacher in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. In the years since, I've had the opportunity to work with students in grades K-8 as a teacher of Math, Science, and Computer Education, a School Technology Coordinator, and a District Technology Trainer. I'm currently the Faculty Professional Growth Specialist at Pensacola Catholic High School in Pensacola, Florida.
I've spoken at over a dozen State and National Conferences including the annual conferences of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, National Science Teacher's Association, Northwest Council for Computer Education, National Catholic Education Association, and the Florida Educational Technology Conference. For the past four summers, I have led the Digital Learning Summer Institute, a week-long seminar for private school teachers in the Florida Panhandle.
I was selected as an Apple Distinguished Educator in 2003 and began contributing to Scholastic.com in 1995. My passion is helping teachers find ways to use technology as a tool to engage and excite students.
For the past 15 years, I've lived just outside of Pensacola, Florida with my husband, Pete, and our very spoiled dog, Effie. I love to cook, but love to eat more. When I don't have an electronic device in my hand you'll find me outside hiking and gardening if it's sunny or inside tatting if it's not. I'm an avid reader and it's a rare day I don't have at least 3 books sitting open somewhere: one for enjoyment, one for professional development, and one for personal growth.
