Well, today I arrived in Meyersdale, Pennsylvania, and it sure is cold outside. We even had snowflakes falling earlier today. I think we're expecting several inches of snow overnight tonight. Wish I would have brought my winter jacket with me!

I'm visiting Mrs. Floyd's sixth grade classes here at Meyersdale Middle School. They seem excited to have me in their classroom. The school is organized into three buildings, even though all three are connected by hallways. There's an elementary building, a middle school building, and a high school building. The middle school is for grades 6-8. Mrs. Floyd teaches English in the middle school. There are about 240 kids in the middle school, and 9 regular education middle school teachers. It seems like a great place to work and to learn! The kids and staff members are so friendly.

Today, in Mrs. Floyd's classes, the students are taking quizzes on their vocabulary words. They are also practicing answering PSSA questions. Next week will be more exciting. The students will get to spend more time with me, taking pictures, posting to the blog, and reading about my past travels. They will also be starting their next unit...Treasure Island. I can't wait to read about all the pirate adventures that take place in that book.

Well, I guess I should go for now. The students are almost finished with their quizzes and I want to see how well they did. Check back next week for pictures of me hanging out at Meyersdale.
