My name is Monica and I live on the central coast of California. Put your finger half way between San Francisco and LA, and that's probably going to get you in my neck of the woods.
I am a new to teaching computers to Transitional Kindergarten - Second Grade. I'm trying to find a balance between what is developmentally appropriate for my students and the Common Core standards, which is a challenge. I have four year olds that have hands smaller than the mouse they are required to use.
I'm hoping to be a part of this community to just to bounce and share ideas with other teachers. I'm extremely new to coding, having taken my first basic workshop this past June. It was fabulous and I'm ready to get started, but I only see students for 25 minute sessions (once they walk over, sit down and get directions). So any help that anyone has for a first year computer teacher is gratefully accepted and appreciated!!!
I am still needing to set up a teacher profile for social media, so I'll get that up when I'm done. Not able to post a picture yet and I love the old Thrifty's peanut butter chocolate ice cream. Then one that was a chocolate ice cream with a peanut butter cream running through it.
Excited to be here!!!
