Welcome to my Homepage.
My name is Diane Horodowich and I am a media specialist at Gratigny Elementary School. I work with students in grades pre-kindergarten through six. We have two media specialists at our school, Ms. Sandra Brown is the other media specialist. We have a library clerk, who is like a third media specialist, her name is Ms. Rina Gonzalez, and a micro-systems technician, Mr. Bob Tarvin. We collaborate with teachers to intergrate technology and library resources into their classrooms. I am active in the Dade County Media Specialists Association as treasurer. The Title I Community Involvement Specialist and I work together to plan parent activites for Gratigny's parents.
In the media center I plan on teaching the following topics: 1. Internet usage in the classroom. 2. Use of video and multimedia in the production of student projects. 3. Use of the on-line catelog for finding resources in a library.
I am very interested in meeting with other teachers who are interested in these topics.
It is very hot in Miami, Florida. The temperature often reaches 98°. We seldom get cold weather. Most of the time we have the air conditioner running.
