Student Profile Page: Carol B


Welcome to my Wonderful, NEW Wiki World!

Grade Level/Discipline: I am a Title I teacher. I give extra reading support to 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders.

Few Facts about myself:

  1. Fact 1: I am the Household Manager and Parenting Engineer to my two wonderful sons. (That is my creative way of saying I am a single mom.)
  2. Fact 2: I love to ski and miss living near the slopes like I did growing up in Pennsylvania.
  3. Fact 3: Grey's Anatomy and Desperate Housewives are my two favorite TV shows. They are Tivoed of course, because I never have time to watch things at their regular time.
  4. Fact 4: On Sundays, you can find me ringing Handbells in my church bell choir. In Middle School, High School, and College, I played mallet percusion instruments. I even got to play at two Buffalo Bills Games.

What I'd like to learn or get out of this course:
I am anxious to learn how the "Net Generation" learns and what we, as educators, are going to do differently to meet their new way of learning and thinking.
Also, I am interested in learning about the new technology and how it will play a role in my teaching/coaching strategies with today's students.

My favorite game(s):
My favorite game to play with my sons is Monopoly Junior. I like to play Balderdash when I play games with other adults. It is a fun way to show off your bluffing skills while trying to figure out your friend's abilities to bluff! I am also addicted to Pathwords on Facebook.
