Hello!

Hello welcome to my blog site. First let me introduce myself. My name is Jacquie Vierling. This is my first attempt in the world of blogging so I will definitley be learning as I go!

I have been teaching for 14 years, and I have taught every grade from K – Grade 6. I currently teach with Regina Public Schools. I teach in a Grade 5 class and it is definitely my favourite grade to teach. I am a Masters of Education Student in the Teaching, Learning and Leadership program at the University of Regina.

I am very passionate about figure skating. When I am not at school, teaching or learning, you can usually find me on the ice. I coach figure skating and learn to skate at the CityView Skating Club in White City.

I am married and I have a 13 year old step son who also keeps us very busy with hockey and baseball. We also have a 6 year old Airedale Terrier Named Barclay

Three goals that I have for my EC&I 834 class are:

  1. To learn new online learning practices that I can incorporate into my classroom on a regular basis
  2. To become more familiar with and learn how to use different and new online content and platforms
  3. Let’s face it, the digital age is among us, and the online world is constanly changing, so getting up to speed and learning about new trends in our field

Although I am new to blogging I have began a Twitter page that I use with my Grade 5 students, please feel free to check it out @jacquievierling

I am looking forward to learning with everyone this semester!

  2. Hi Jacquie, I am so exciting to be taking a class with you and starting our Masters journey together. I am sure we will be able to draw on our shared experiences to support our learning and learn many new things to transfer to our classrooms.
