About Project 365

Thanks for stopping by my blog! This is Year 2 of my Project365 blog. What is a Project 365? It's a photo challenge involving people from all over the world posting one photo per day throughout 2011. Some photographers choose themes, however for now my photos will be totally random. I will be shooting with my Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi-18-55mm, 75-300mm zoom and 100mm 2.8 macro lenses. I edit in iPhoto and Photoshop Elements 9. Not all photos are "perfect"; the purpose is to make photography an everyday event.

I am not a professional. Photography has always been a diversion of mine. I am a primary grade teacher and passionate tech. enthusiast. I consider myself an experienced amateur with LOTS to learn!

You will find links to other photographers in the sidebar- do check them out! I have also joined the Flickr EdTech 365/2011 Group, and you can click this link to view the entire pool. I will be posting my photos to their group pool, as well as here on my photo blog. I welcome your constructive criticism!


1. Photos are to be taken in 2011.
2. Post your own work only.
3. Images may be edited or unedited- your choice.
4. Keep your images, text, and comments appropriate for all ages.

I went out yesterday and purchased one of these colorful, spiral-bound index card holders for each of my 2nd graders, on which to write high-frequency words for them to study. The thought behind it is that they can practice with an ed. tech., parent, or high school volunteer. Every time they read the word pretty much automatically, we add a sticker to the card. Once they get 10 stickers on a card, they get to rip it out and take it home. Second graders LOVE stickers! I hope it will be motivating. And people wonder how teachers can possibly use so much of their own money in the classroom? If it gets the job done...


  1. I hear ya. It doesn't take too long to spend those pennies. The card holders ARE pretty though and practical, a great combination. Nice pic!

  2. Great colors. Pity there is never enough simple things like this in schools.
