My name is Gerry and I am a teacher at McMillan Middle School. I teach creative writing to sixth graders and reading to sixth, seventh, and eighth graders. The Environmental Club, including recycling, is a voluntary activity.
I am using folktales and Action Magazine to teach reading skills right now and use the personal time line as a jumping off point for memoir writing. Eventually the authors will write several forms of poetry including haiku, concrete poems, name poems and others. I plan to be a media specialist when I grow up and have just passed the state certification exam. I am very interested in meeting with other teachers who are interested in these areas.
The weather in Miami, Florida is simply gorgeous. The temperature occasionally reaches 98°, but usually it ranges in the seventies and low eighties. It's exotic, cosmopolitan, and warm.
Search engines are a great way to find useful information of the Web. One of my favorites is Education World.
