About Me!!

Seven years ago, I walked into a dusty basement classroom filled with books, wooden desks, and a large black chalkboard. I had entered the arena of Adult 12 with one week until students were going to show up ready to learn. The adventure began on that day and continues to amaze me.

Flash forward to the current day, my classroom is in a shiny new building filled with movable tables, new chairs, and a large white Smartboard. My classroom has evolved into a blended learning environment with mostly face-to-face instruction. Every day is still filled with bustling activity, eager students, and the excitement of learning.

(Chemistry class using “kitchen” chemistry experiments.)

As for my own adventure, I began the Master’s in Teaching, Learning, and Leadership program a couple of years ago. I have progressed to the final stages of this journey with three classes left to go. With EC&I 832 and EC&I 834, I am embracing the opportunity to learn new skills and meet new people. Please follow me on Twitter @patricia_ives
