Hi! My name is Jennifer Sayers. I teach 6th, 7th, and 8th grade science and P.E. at Sugar Grove Combined School, which is a Pre-K-8 school in Smyth County, VA. I also coach middle school volleyball and track. I am the mother of two little boys ages 6 and 22 months, who keep me hopping! Right now I'm watching the snow fall and secretly wishing for a two-hour delay tomorrow:).

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.

Thanks, Wendy, for joining and introducing yourself. I hope this site benefits you and others at your school.
