On Monday we get a holiday from school to celebrate the great Martin Luther King Jr. Isn’t it cool that we can change things like Dr. King. What’s your plan to change things?

About the Author

Hello my name is Karen McKelvey and I am a 3rd grade teacher at Curie Elementary School in San Diego, California. I began teaching at Curie Elementary in 2002. I feel fortunate to be part of such a great community. I love blogging with my students as it provides them with an authentic audience for their work. Collaborative group work and project-based learning are key components of my classroom. I completed my Masters degree in Educational Technology from San Diego State University in 2010. Many of the concepts/pedagogy and technologies I learned about in this program, like learning management systems, Google tools, and blogs are implemented in my classroom. Technology plays a key role in the learning that occurs in our classroom. We don’t learn about technology, we learn with technology. Students are engaged in activities that incorporate writing, research skills, critical and creative thinking skills, and much more on a daily basis.

    I want to change the world by designing things to make people’s lives easier. I’m thinking maybe some magnetic things that float.

    Kid President is right, Monday is not just a day off of school. It is also a very important day so we can celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. for when he made changes in the world that made the world a better place.

    Monday is not a day where we relax, Monday is a day we remember Dr. King for fighting civil rights and for making changes in the world that no one would have done.

    dear Mrs. Mckelvey,

    My plan to change the world is to have boys to stop thinking their better than girls, because one its annoying and to its just mean for them to be bragging that they are better at baseball and all that.
