Here we are ready to start another exciting school year! There are a lot of great things that are happening at North Junior High School and I cannot wait. This year in Language Arts we will be exploring and learning many new things. Students will experience our classroom and beyond using conventional methods of instruction as well as a wealth of 21st Century Skills. Speaking of 21st Century Skills, that brings me to this blog which I am very enthusiastic about. Learning how to do all of these new skills really gives me a sense of empowerment and personal satisfaction. It is my wish that my students feel the same way about everything we try, learn, and master in class. Our class blog will be used to communicate with students, parents, and me each day. Our posts will tell what happens in class, as well as what is expected in the future, any fun stories that need to be shared, pertinent information, and soon will include pictures and videos, just as soon as I learn how to do that. I will be begin the posting, but as soon as the students feel comfortable they will be joining in the fun. Then anyone can comment on our posts and ask any questions that might arise. This is not my blog; it is our blog, so please feel free to be a part of it. Make sure and check our blog often because you do not want to miss any of the information and fun.
It is hard to believe that school will start in just a few short days, but I say, “Let the excitement and learning begin.” I look forward to seeing all of you soon.
