This is my class blog where I will post weekly updates about upcoming events and to keep you informed on what we are learning about in class. I will email you the link to my updated blog weekly. I also use Class Dojo in my class and will be sending you an invitation to join. I use Class Dojo for quick and easy communication. I like to send pictures of the fun things going on in our class along with sending quick messages or updates as needed. It can also be used as a form of text messaging between you and me. Sometimes I see a Dojo message before I see an email.
Here is a little information about me.
Family: I am lucky to have married my best friend LeRoy, 24 years ago. We have two sons, Devin and Cameron who have both just graduated from MSU in May. Devin graduated with a degree in Computer Information Systems and Cameron has his degree in Marketing with an emphasis in Advertising and Promotions along with a minor in Economics. We also have a German Shepherd dog named Sophie. She is spoiled and always gives me stories to tell the kids.;)
Years in education: This is my 13th year teaching! I taught 4th grade for 2 years, moved to 2nd grade for 8 years and then moved to 1st grade. I have loved all the grades I have taught, but there is something about 1st grade that has stolen my heart!
Drink: Pepsi or water
Interesting Facts: This is not my first career. Before I was a teacher I worked in surgery at Cox Health as a Surgical Tech.
The Highlight of My Summer: The lake is our home away from home. We spent most of the summer at the lake enjoying our family time.
I am looking forward to getting to know all of you! Enjoy the rest of your summer and I am excited to see you on the 14th!
