New year - new blog?

Last year was overwhelming.  Even though I had done Odyssey for a number of years, there were many things I had to learn how to do.  I started this, but never posted beyond the first week - and that changed dramatically.  However, I am hoping to change that this year.

Some changes - my goal is to have an active classroom with all students and coaches on it.  In addition, we will have a "Remind" set up with all coaches as owners.  I am hoping these will facilitate communication between students, coaches, parents, and me.

I have published my plan for the first 2 days, and I will be working on filling in weird details.

Moving to a new place...

I have spent the last 7 years at PATS.  Six years ago, I started the Odyssey program there, and I built it into something great.  They have been to State every year and to World twice.  Over the six years, six teams placed in the top five at state and several others placed close (6-8).  I have left the program in the hands of a capable teacher who I genuinely hope will keep it energized and successful for years to come.

This coming fall, I am moving to Ferry Pass Middle.  At Ferry Pass, I will be involved with the Odyssey program, and I am fortunate enough to have a class, once a day, for about 50 minutes.  As I build that class and grow that program, I will be posting here.  In addition, I will be posting about our teams throughout the Pensacola area, because my hope is that our program will grow even further.  I will post photos of brilliant teams and other interesting bits, and my hope is that you may continue in my journey with me.
