1st blog spot – Background

  1. What name do you prefer to be called? What are your preferred pronouns? – Jerry Volpe (he, his, him)
  2. Hometown and photograph of you (inserted in your blog so we can learn your name). I am from Pittsburgh, PA
  3. Grade level and subject(s) that you want to teach. – I am taking this class as an elective, but if I were to teach, it would be high school math.
  4. What are you into; what makes you special? Share a few “unique” aspects about yourself that would help our classroom community get to know you a bit. Are you on an athletic team? Sing in the choir?  Are you trying out for a play? Painting? What are you planning on doing this semester in your life that is noteworthy? – I enjoy watching and playing sports and also like to travel. I work at the Ben and Jerrys that is on campus.
  5. I want to know what matters most to you.  To this end, please share with the class a book, chapter, or article that is essential to your interests. (Include the reference to the reading and a few sentences about its significance to you). – My favorite book of all time is Unstoppable written by Tim Green. It is a football book about a kid who had a rough life by ultimately made it through and was able to succeed in the end.
