Is it odd that the first blog post on this new director of curriculum/instruction /assessment blog is about family rather than work? Not if you know me; family is my first priority, and I have lots of family. Thank goodness.
I have two grown married children and each one has two children; yes, that means I have four grandchildren — three girls and one boy. They range in age from three and a half months to seven. My youngest makes an appearance on this website in my About pic. Here are the others
Now here’s the part that where it gets really 21st Century. I also have an 11-year old and a 12-year old at home. Yes, really. My husband and I were lucky enough and worked really hard to foster > adopt both of our children. And, there’s the Doodle, too. Her name is Embden as in Embden Pond, because we wanted to name her after something we all love, and we love our camp on Embden Pond. She is one year old, so bouncy enough to still be a whole lotta fun but has enough skills that she is okay to take out in public — most of the time.
Well, that’s my family. And, I must say that if they need me, I am there. The nice thing about that is if your family needs you, I completely understand and will urge you to go be with them, too.
