My name is Shawn Ross – 4th grade teacher in California. I have been in the education field just over 10 years and have a passion for incorporating technology into the classroom. This blog was created to chronicle my first year using the newly adopted CCSS (Common Core State Standards) in California. Please follow me on this exciting, new, and at times frustrating journey across the Common Core! All the views and opinions are mine and not associated with my school or district.
