Welcome to the Blog for Room 217. It is now summer and may post from time to time. I thoroughly enjoyed my first year at Dovercourt PS and look forward to the 2017-2018 school year and working in the Intermediate division. Room 52, at Alexander Muir/Gladstone Avenue PS, was where this blog was hatched, several years ago, and a reminder of a school central to my development as an educator. Thanks for visiting.
