Hi Amber. This is really strange. I was going to invite you when I got back to my motel room so not sure how the invite happened. I'm glad you are in but I didn't do it. I still have 5 members that are not in yet.

They aren't blocked here just for some reason they won't load from time to time.

I am trying to get my teachers signed into Ning but they are getting messages that they need Administrator approval. Is that something that you can grant them? Thanks!

Hi Amber. I wanted to check and see if you had an agenda for Sept. 23 team training? I will need to leave Hutch by 2:00 so I was hoping that I would not miss much.

Hi Amber! Just wanted to say thank you for all your help yesterday at the training. I went and got School House Rock Election Collection and am going to see what I can do with it. It has some of the cutest songs ever on it! Thanks for the idea!!!

Hey Amber, Jen and I were looking to attend a workshop that will allow us to physically have a hands-on application that we can use when we return to the classroom. Can you send me a list of workshops that we can attend?

Hi, Amber.
I can't quite figure out what just went wrong. I answered all three of Jana's questions and thought I sent it correctly, but it ain't there!! So, luckily I'm so old school, I had to write my notes first, so I am ready to begin again. Hope you can read my response soon.
