Hello! First, I'd like to apologize to everyone for not participating sooner because I actually thought I was still a follower! That's what happens when you work two teaching jobs! I promise to catch up and look forward to working with you all.
Let me introduce myself: My name is Jocelyn Condenzio-Hall and I am an Adjunct at Daytona State College teaching Developmental Reading courses to incoming freshmen, as well as a remote virtual teacher of Social Studies at Bridgewater Academy. I'm going non-stop from 8:00am-8:30pm every day!
As a teacher of both reading and social science, I strive to teach my students the importance of writing well to express meaning and communicate one's thoughts. I find it an upward battle at times because many of my students are part of the texting generation where all thoughts are reduced to bite-size bits of words for brevity, not meaning. I try to help them see the beauty of the English language as a means to express the thoughts and feelings they have deep inside. It doesn't always work, but I'll keep trying! :)
