This is Whitney Rockafellow, Ann's long-term sub. I am a recent graduate from Eastern Michigan University. I completed my student teaching at Muir Middle School and I am a former Huron Valley student. It's great to be back in the district--but on the other side now!
The past two weeks have been crazy, yet wonderful! I've had a great time getting to know the kids! The staff has been extremely helpful.
The past two weeks I've been getting into my groove and getting to know each student. We've started our circles unit in social skills! We've hit the first two circles--purple and blue. So, we've talked about personal information and who should know this information. I asked each student if they knew their address and phone number. Most students were very confident on this! At the beginning of next week we will be talking about family members. It's been a great first two weeks! I'm excited to see what the rest of the school year brings!
