This is my 8th year in education. It is my third year teaching at Dennett Elementary in Plympton, Massachusetts, where I currently teach 6th grade. I keep a classroom blog that can be found at mravery.edublogs.org.
Even though I haven’t been teaching that long, I’ve already had the opportunity to teach in many different cities. I started out teaching in Sandwich, Massachusetts. Then I moved to Savannah, Georgia which is over 1,000 miles away! It was much different than Massachusetts. We never got snow and the summers were so hot! After Georgia, I taught in Columbus, Ohio. Columbus reminded me a lot of Boston but instead of everyone rooting for the Red Sox and the Patriots, everyone would root for the Ohio State Buckeyes. Now those are my three favorite teams! Finally, I decided to move back to Massachusetts which is where I am now, teaching in Plympton!
I have been lucky enough to be named as a Rookie of the Year by the Plymouth County Educators Association. I’ve also recently been named to the Top 40 Under 40 by the Cape and Plymouth Business Magazine! I’m honored but could not have done any of this without the amazing work of my colleagues and all of their help!
I love trying to find new ways to incorporate technology into the classroom. I look forward to exploring the use of the green screen in our classroom this year. I can’t wait to create new projects with the students that we can share on our blog. I look forward to everything that this year has to bring!
