Navigating This Blog


This blog has been developed to house the professional development sessions taught by Cara Whitehead.  Cara's primary focus of professional development is on integrating technology and enhancing curriculum and instruction.  Please use the tabs on the left to navigate to the appropriate pages.  Mrs. Whitehead has the opportunity to present at the school, district, state, and national levels. Here, one will find links to handouts, PowerPoints, and various other links that she uses during her presentations.  Feel free to use them as needed, but please GIVE CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE.


As Cara creates other professional development sessions, she will post them here.  So check often for updates.

If you are interested in speaking with Mrs. Whitehead concerning professional development opportunities, please email her at carajwhitehead@gmail.com

Edcamp Connect


EdCamp Connect is a collaborative effort of the Attalla City, Gadsden City, and Etowah County School Systems in Northeast Alabama.  This "unconference" will allow the educators within our districts to be a part of participant-driven, peer training at its best.  The concept of an unconference is to provide a free day of professional development to educators within our system.  During the day, you will network with educators from the three districts, attend sessions of your choice, and be given the opportunity to present a presentation or panel discussion on any educational topic of choice.  Breakfast and lunch are provided, and door prizes will be given.  The best part is that the entire day is FREE and will count as a full day toward your variance day.  

Edcamp Connect will take place on Monday, July 7, 2014, at Gadsden City High School.  Registration is limited to the first 300.  Since it is open to all educators within the three systems, I would suggest that you go ahead and register through STIPD.  The number is ECBOE-T121.  

If you have any further questions, please ask.  We are exciting about bringing an Edcamp to Etowah County!
