First blog.

So this is my first blog and I didn't know what to write until I was pondering about on the internet and I came across a quote, which hit me as soon as I read it.

"If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it."
— Margaret Fuller
Starting this blog was an assignment for the newly designed Web2.0 class at Bonner Prendie Catholic High School in collaboration with Van Meter in Iowa. Two seemingly average individuals share their knowledge with young adults to help expand the idea of social networking and enlighten them to new perspectives of the internet.With the leadership of Mr. Brannick and Mrs. Miller, doors have been opened to new opportunities and broader horizons throughout the web that I never would have imagined. Plain and simple. 
It's so great to know that there are actually people out there willing to share knowledge and inspire young adults, like myself, to take advantage of the tools available today for positive outcomes.
It was only right that someone took the initiative to acknowledge educators like Mrs. Miller and Mr. Brannick for doing such a wonderful job on their journey to leading kids to better and greater success. (:


  1. I completely agrre with what your saying and your title "If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it."

  2. I Agree with every thing you have said in this post. I as well am a student that has recently started a web2.0 class with vanmeter in Iowa. I really like this quote as well because it basically sums up what my Principle is doing by teaching a class as well as Managing our entire high school. This helps us expand our social networking skills

  3. What a great quote. It's nice to hear that somebody is currently in the same position as I. I live in Burlington MA and i just started our also new web 2.0 class of our own. Its like being in a new little world. Hope you enjoy your journey!

  4. Hi I go to Van Meter. I like the quote you found. It's great to be working with you and your fellow classmates this year and I hope we get to know all of you better as the year goes on.
