Technology: A Tool for Creative Writing

Mrs. Haley's Room


Technology is everywhere and it is a tool that most students understand. Some students are almost obsessed with technology. Let me clarify that when I say “obsessed” I mean that I had a third grade student tell me that she could not sleep the night before because her “phone kept going off.” Truthfully, I am most likely too attached to my smartphone, tablet, laptop, and so on.

I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
