I was born in Birmingham England, so I have a funny accent! I have lived in Ocala for over 30 years with my husband and all of our girls. My hobbies are dogs, gardening, and kids! All three of these hobbies keep me very busy and I wouldn't have it any other way!
Our house is close to the school, it is nice to work and live in the same community, as I am able to see my students and families around town. I have three dogs that I walk and play with daily. They require a lot of love and care, but I don't mind.
This week, we are making a huge vegetable garden at our house. We hope to grow tomatoes, lettuce, melons, and much more. I can see we will be spending many hours outside this summer.
All of my children graduated from Ocala schools. Now, only one still lives in Ocala and she also works in a school. However, I am able to see all of my kids on a regular basis as everyone still lives in Florida. I also have two grandbabies and luckily for me they live here in Ocala.
I can honestly say I have missed each and every one of you!
I hope you are reading EVERY day. You all know the difference reading just 20 minutes a day makes, but I would like you to read for 30 minutes a day. This will make my reading heart happy and your brain grow stronger.
During the next few weeks the third grade team will post assignments for you to complete. I think it will be fun for us to learn this mode of work. We will have due dates for each assignment. As we are all new to this way of work you will be able to contact me as needed. The very best way is email, so please try this first.
Sometimes new things are a little scary but together we can do this, remember our “We haven’t learned it YET! Together we can do anything!
