Hello World!

Hello NameTagWelcome to my class blog. This will be a space for sharing ideas and engaging in some ongoing conversations around posted topics. I hope you will feel comfortable commenting.

I’d like to use this space today to introduce myself. First let me say that I’m very excited to be teaching at Waters Edge this year.

I have been a teacher for 25 years. My first 20 were in the classroom where I have taught 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th grade students. I taught at Coral Sunset Elementary, Waters Edge Elementary (yes, I’m back!), and Sunrise Park Elementary. For the last 5 years, I have been a district administrator where my job has been mostly to help teachers learn to use technology effectively in their classrooms.

I’ve always missed teaching students but more so recently. So, when I heard about all the great things happening at Waters Edge, I decided that I really wanted to be a part of such a wonderful learning experience.

Do you ever get nervous on the first day of school? We all do. It always makes me nervous when I meet someone for the first time. I wonder if the person will like me and what impression I will make. I want people to know that I’m friendly and I also want them to know that I ask a lot of questions, not because I’m nosy or trying to argue, but because I’m curious.

What do you want people to know about you when you meet them for the first time?

(To my students, as a reminder, the first week optional homework assignment is posted below.)

I want people to know that I am a very friendly and fun person. I like to play ice hockey, board games, play with my dogs, and swim.
