I just got done with my new website:  abvmsecond   A couple of the links are not completed, because I do not have the documents done yet.  Additionally, I have my pictures to add yet.  Unfortunately, I cannot do that to fall.  Please check it out and share your thoughts.  THANK YOU! 

HAPPY SUMMER!!! Ok, needed to type that because I don't think I have put that in a post yet :-)

Summer School is On!

Summer School is on.  6 weeks long-2 week sessions.  Many classes are offered-sewing, survival skills, active games, fishing, community trips, to mine-Technology Time and Prezi. I would love to sign up for some of the classes; can I teach and attend at the same time?  In my day, summer school meant academics needed touching up on.
Here are some of the sites I have shared with my 18 summer school kiddos:

Thankfully, class is only 90 minutes long, we are always trying to exceed progress from previous days challenges and create and build online works of art that excel yesterday's creations.

Below are two of my favorite teacher poems:

Working in the Gardens

WOW...first time since I have been teaching that we have been in the school this late.

Here are some pictures of us working in our school parish gardens.  Grade K-5 went to our gardens for service work.  We picked rocks, pulled weeds, planted, and found many pet rocks (and of course bugs, toads, etc.).
