Hello Families! We are all done with MCA testing! The kids did a great job trying their best on this annual testing time in Minnesota. Expect results to be mailed home within the summer months. Next week we are going to St. Paul. We are in need of chaperones that are willing to come on this great adventure. Please call, e-mail or send a note if you are interested and I will get back to you. We also need ALL permission forms returned ASAP. As always, thanks for what you do and please contact me if you have any questions, comments or concerns.

About the Blogger

Jay and Jack-Pacific

My name is Jay Monson and I started teaching elementary school in the Mankato Public Schools in 1994. There I taught grades 2, 4, and 6. I moved north to Duluth in 1999 and have since taught grades 4, 5, 3-5 Title I Reading and Math, and K-6 Technology Integration.

My formal education includes a Bachelors of Science (Teaching) degree from Minnesota State University, Mankato in 1994 and a Masters of Education degree with a concentration in Educational Computing and Technology from University of Minnesota, Duluth in 2004. I have also been trained and trained others in teaching gifted and talented students, technology integration strategies, classroom management philosophies such as Responsive Classroom and Judicious Discipline, math and reading remediation methods, and various curricular area pilot programs.

I enjoy backpacking, canoeing, kayaking, and running the roads and trails of Northern Minnesota and the U.S. On any given day you may find me on the Superior Hiking Trail, on Lake Superior, or hanging out in the woods with my wife and Nettleton kindergarten teacher, Sara, and our chocolate lab, Jack.

I fell in love with blogging and the opportunities it offers to kids. I enjoy using technology to write, share, and communicate. I currently hang out with creative fifth grade kids as we learn to become peaceful, productive citizens of our world community.

Our students follow a technology acceptable use policy and sign a blogger contract. If you have any questions or comments please e-mail me at: Jay.Monson@duluth.k12.mn.us.
