My name is Roderick Hames and I have been teaching for 19 years.  My first 6 years were at Trickum Middle School and the last 13 years have been at Crews Middle School.  I have a family of 4 children.  Rod who is 10, Joy 9, Adrian 4, and Ana who is 3.  My wife stays at home with our two little ones while Rod and Joy attend Craig Elementary.

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.
