December 5-11, 2016 is Computer Science Education Week.  South O’Brien will be celebrating with their First Annual Wolverine Hour of Code.  For this first event, we’ll be using resources on the website www.code.org

After-school events will be held Tuesday Dec 6 for grades 4-6, approximately 3:30 to 5, and Thursday Dec 8 for grades 9-12, approximately 3:45 to 5. All of these activities for South O’Brien students will be opportunities to learn coding. More information can be seen at the links below.

I’ve been a teacher at Primghar and South O’Brien since 1979.

I have a new position on the staff this year and  I’m enjoying the new adventure.

Favorite Quote:

“Use your powers for good, not for evil.”
(Frequently attributed to Superman’s father. Spoken to his son in the Fortress of Solitude.)
