The End of the Beginning is a book title by one of my favorite children's authors: Avi. This school year in 3rd grade was very special to my class and I, because we had the opportunity to Skype with Avi! We had previously read his book entitled Poppy and completely fell in love with the story! We couldn't wait to tell him about it and talk to a real author! In preparation for the Skype visit, we read several of his other books including parts of The End of the Beginning. Although the year in 3rd grade is coming to an end, it is actually the end of the beginning of many incredible new experiences for these students! I have learned so much from this crew! They absolutely love to learn and are constantly asking questions, searching for answers, and finding new passions and interests. My hope for these students is that they would make the most of every opportunity that comes their way and continue to learn their whole lives through. So, third graders, this is not goodbye nor the end. It is just a door opening to the beginning of many new experiences. Congratulations on your graduation from Primary School and I can't wait to hear about where life takes you in the future!
Meet Miss Coon
I love to learn new things! One great place to learn is by spending time in nature and the outdoors! Any opportunity that I can get to take a bike ride, hike, or walk I will gladly do it! I also love music and enjoy playing my flute at church and singing with my sisters. But most of all, I love kids. My passion is to teach children to inquire, and to love learning about this incredible world as I do. My students tend to think I love to learn just because I am a teacher. By modeling the struggle of learning and researching my own interests, I hope my students and others can follow my example and be empowered to seek after their questions to find answers in the midst of the struggle.
