As you will learn from my posts, I live in Connecticut, which is in the northeast part of the United States. It is a small state, and you might not know much about Connecticut.
On the other hand, I hope to learn about Iowa from you. I once stayed in Iowa, but it was only for a few days and a long time ago, so I don't remember much other than seeing lots of farms.
I used to teach English to students in grades 7 through 12. I now teach in a college in Connecticut, The University of Saint Joseph. I teach different courses, but I know your teacher, Mr. Boylen, because students in my graduate education courses, who are teachers, have been blogging back and forth with students in Mr. Boylen's classes. They read the students' posts and write replies.
Mr. Boylen and I decided it would be fun for me to keep a blog and for you to read it and write replies. But I need your help, so want to know what kinds of topics interest you. I am hoping you leave a reply.
For now, I am including a picture of the University where I teach and some pictures from one of the classroom where I teach.
This is one of the main buildings on the University campus. We have about another 15 buildings, including dorms where students live and a big athletic center, and lots of playing fields.
Here are students in my one of my classes composing their first blog posts.
Here is a close up of one of the students working on finding pictures to put in one of her blog posts.
If you want me to post more pictures of the students at work or my university campus, just let me know. I posted just these few so you can picture where I teach.
Most of all, let me know what topics you think it would be good for me to blog about that would be of interest to students in your class.
Great meeting. Look forward to your replies.
