Hi, My name is Tami Kuhfal and I teach 5th and 6th grade in Orchard, Nebraska. I have 14 5th graders and 4 6th grade. We are departmentalized. I teach reading, spelling to both grades and math and social studies to 5th grade. I am in the northeast corner of the state. Our population is 150. I live 30 minutes away in a town of 1,600.
We have always participated in Hour of Code. This year I started a Coding Club. I have 25 students in it!!!!! I have used Spheros for the start but am now starting Level F for them. I am new to all of this. I became inspired by my daughter who is a Computer Engineer.
I have an amazing husband, 2 beautiful daughters and a 16 year old dog. My favorite ice cream is rocky road.
This summer I spent it recuperating after my 2nd open heart surgery to replace my aortic valve. I was born with a congenital heart defect that has never limited me.
I am excited to learn along with my students.
