Thing 1: Blogging

My name is Jessica Duffy.  I am the Media Literacy teacher at Poestenkill Elementary School in the Averill Park School District.  This is my first year.  I was the librarian in Lanesborough, MA for the last two years and I love what I do.

I also love my family. Two kids and two dogs.  Most of my reading these days is to my kids.  Right now: Harry Potter and whatever picture books my son picks out.

I like to run, bike, cross country ski, hike, camp, travel and whatever else gets me out to see new places and new things.  Recently, I’ve been fascinated by spanish TV dramas.  Just finished Gran Hotel and currently engrossed in The Time In Between.

I could talk about those shows forever, but I don’t know anyone else that has seen them!

I am not new to blogging.  We’ve been blogging with 4th and 5th grade this fall.  I read the Top Ten Reasons to blog and wonder why my experience is different than what is expressed in the article.  Our students love to blog mostly for the social aspect of commenting.  The content of their blogs are slowly improving but it took months of reinforcing proper grammar and punctuation and expectations.

This is my first time using WordPress.  I’ve added a Gravatar and a Goodreads widget. So far, so good!
