Education Blogs

I'm starting to see how blogs can be used for education. I still need some concrete examples I can put to real use in my classroom. Maybe this blog will become where I put my educational practices later on next school year. I'm still learning about how to encourage my student's parents to use blogs and to make it safe for my young students.

Blog Post Assignment #2 for John Rivera's Learning & Teaching with the Read/Write Web

Thursday, May 17, 2007


Hi everyone, I'm Maria Rivera. I received my B.A. in Child Development and my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential from CSULA. I teach Kindergarten at Delevan Drive Elementary School. Delevan is in the Eagle Rock area in Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), Local District 4. This is my fifth year teaching Kinder, I taught first grade for six years. I've only worked for LAUSD as a lead teacher at Delevan. This is our school's last year at half-day Kinder. Next year, we'll be going full-day. I'll be teaching Kinder again next year. I would like to teach second grade some day.

On a more personal note, I've been married for ten years, and have a seven year old son. I like going on trips whenever I can. We're going on a two week tour of Alaska this Summer. We'll be in a cruise for the first week and then the land tour for the second. We'll be flying up to the Arctic Circle and then head down by train to Denali. I like shopping when we travel. During the school year, I enjoy taking my son to different places and doing things with him. We enjoy going to the beach, parks, museums, swimming and karate lessons, fairs and soon, soccer league!

That's it for now-talk to you later.
