The Man now KNOWS your NAME...

I had to hurry and post that last post because I was so freaked out I wanted to try and catch Rachel before she left. 

There are five girls that I am proud to call friends.  They are the BRIGHTEST and BEST that West Virginia has to offer as far as technology integration is concerned.  I must admit that they are my inspirations, and some of my best work has piggybacked off of what they have already done.  (With full credit to you, onions!) I have Jozette Cooper, who is right beside me in the great county of Mercer.  She listens to me complain and is in the process of trying to help me to learn to LAY IT DOWN. (she knows what this means.) I then have Rachel Fletcher, who keeps the northern half of the state hopping with her knowledge and excellent pranks.  She is the smartest person I have ever met, and I think that she is the reincarnate of the late great Albert Einstein.  I dare you to duel her in a challenge of the minds.

You then move to Kanawha and find Angie Abbott, otherwise known as ABOOOOO.  She is the techy of all things techy, and I cannot tell you how many times I have come to her with a problem and she solved it immediately.  Rock on!

Angie Urling electrifies Lincoln County, and I am surprised she has not been moved to a county technology level position.  She embodies grace and spirit, and thinks on that grand level of schema that encompasses all the different levels of technology integration.  She has a way of taking something small and plugging it into so many different arenas that it takes on a life of its own.  Lincoln is LUCKY to have you!

I finish off with Karen Rollo, whose previous TIS job died a cruel death yet she keeps it real in a regular classroom.  She has the power to find humor in anything, and she is one of the ONLY people who can make me laugh no matter what my mood.  If you can ever attend a training session with ROLLO, you will come away from it with a renewed sense of not taking yourself too seriously. 

On so many levels, these girls far surpass my technology intellect and general ability.  For some reason, we all click so well - and they are my FFL.  My friend card will always be full, and no matter how much time goes by, I will always have them.

Rachel, Jozette, and Karen


Abooo, Me, and Url
