Yvonne Caples

I am a online high school teacher and instructional designer and love to push the boundaries of what it means to teach and learn. I especially enjoy global projects and collaboration that allow students to interact and create with people across borders. In my spare time I like to do yoga, read, cycle, box, travel and tinker on the computer.

Julie Balen

I believe that we get what we ask for. In 2010, I asked the universe for change. Be careful what you ask for, some would say. But I am loving the change from networking in one building to online collaboration with my local colleagues and with my global PLN.
