I'd like to welcome each of you to 5th grade. In just a few weeks we'll be meeting for the first time as a class and beginning to build our school community for this year. I hope that you are as excited as I am!
One of the best parts of school is being in a class where we will learn all about each other. We each have different backgrounds and experiences and each of those things gives us a particularly unique perspective through which we view our world. I am really looking forward to getting to know each and every one of you. To begin, I will share a bit about myself.
I live in Rocky Point with my wife, Dana, and four year old daughter, Isabella. We also have two wild and crazy dogs named Asha and Max. This summer we went on a really amazing vacation to Italy. It was the first time that I had ever been to Europe. In Italy we visited both Sorrento and Rome. I also got a chance to travel within the US this summer as I attended a conference a couple of weeks ago in Los Angeles. I really enjoyed both places that I got to visit this summer.
In my free time I enjoy watching baseball and hockey. I cheer for the Yankees and the Islanders in those sports. I also like to go fishing and enjoy cooking as well. Finally, I LOVE Star Wars and spend a lot of time watching (and re-watching) those movies.
That's a little bit about me. Use the comments feature below to share a little bit about yourself! Just be sure not to use your last name. Finally, check back here at the blog throughout the rest of the summer for additional updates as we get closer to the start of school.
