iMovie Practice

I channeled my inner Steven Spielberg yesterday to prepare for my documentary. My digital camera actually shoots really good video and it downloads beautifully in iMovie. I selected video clips, added titles, and put effects between the clips. It turned out rather nicely. Now, I just need to work on music and audio.

Enjoy the product of my labors below. It is of my cat Maggie because she was the only one I could film at the time. She also won't be upset if I post a video of her on the Internet.

The Start of an Adventure

I have wanted to go to Africa for a long time now. This summer I am getting my wish! I was chosen to be a part of a Fulbright-Hays grant to Senegal.

My companions on this journey are 11 other current and pre-service teachers from all over North Carolina and 2 professors from Appalachian State University. We will be spending almost the whole month of July in Senegal.

I am so excited to immerse myself in a different culture and see how people live in another part of the world. Being able to speak French everyday is going to be wonderful. I can't wait to share my adventures with my students and with all of you.
