My name is Roderick Hames and I have been teaching for 27 years.  My first 6 years were at Trickum Middle School and the last 21 years have been at Crews Middle School.  I have a family of 4 children.  Rod who is 18, Joy 16, Adrian 12, and Ana who is 10.  My wife stays at home with our two little ones while Rod and Joy attend Brookwood High School.

I love teaching students who are eager to learn and at Crews that is the norm not the exception.  It is a rich environment where professional growth is encouraged and new ideas are supported.

I started this Blog this year (2008-09) after attending NECC 2008 in San Antonio.  I wanted kids to reflect on what they learned in my class.  I also wanted parents and my colleagues to have a way to see inside my classroom.  I also have started using a wiki with my 7th grade classes.  They are syndicating newspaper articles they have written using our class wiki site.

I value your comments and suggestions.
