Hi all! I'm currently working in the middle school as a long-term P.E. teacher and cheer coach. I have a B.A. in Mass Communications, and currently, my goal is to complete 4 additional courses and become licensed to teach middle school English. I am married and have two sons, Ty, 15 and Zac, 7. I enjoy learning new things, and being surrounded by optimistic people.
Hello, my name is Sherry Mullins. This is my 25 year in the teaching field. I teach Math 6, Math 7, Math 8, and Algebra I in Smyth County, Virginia. I've been married 38 years and have one son. After attending the AFL workshop on Tuesday, I've been doing alot of thinking about assessment. I need to put alot of thought into how and WHY something is graded.
Thanks for taking the time to introduce yourself, Sherry. I'm glad the workshop has caused you to do some thinking and self-evaluation. Let me know if you need to bounce any ideas of someone. Keep in touch!
I'm Wendy, I teach 6th, 7th, & 8th grade computers at Lewis & Clark Middle School. I have been teaching for 17 years.
