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:
- To learn new online learning practices that I can incorporate into my classroom on a regular basis
- To become more familiar with and learn how to use different and new online content and platforms
- 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!
