My name is Cindy Hundley and I am 45 years old. I have been married for 14 years to my husband, Jason. I live in Louisville, Kentucky and have all of my life. My immediate family also lives in Louisville and I spend time with them as much as I can.
I enjoy working out, yes, really, and do so six times a week. I like to mix it up, but right now I’m doing P90X3. Hopefully it will help me stay focused and relaxed throughout this semester.
When I have the time, which doesn’t seem to be that often, I like to make greeting cards using rubber stamps and paper ink techniques. I have actually had several of my cards published in national magazines.
On the weekends, which is the only time I get to see my husband, (we work different shifts) we love to go out to eat. We make it a practice to try new things most people won’t eat. I like to think that all of these weird dishes may help me survive if I’m ever stranded somewhere with little to eat. Consequently, the eating out makes the exercising even more important.
I just recently accepted a new job in my district as a Goal Clarity Coach (basically an instructional coach for teachers) at Wilkerson Traditional Elementary. I am so excited to be starting something new! I plan to use the information I gain through my LMS courses to help me assist teachers in finding resources, using technology, and, of course, teaching literacy skills. My passion has always been books and reading which is why I am so excited to be working toward my Library Media Science degree. How awesome will it be to teach students how to read, gain knowledge about questions they have, and to LOVE books!
Over the past decade or so, I have been given many opportunities that have benefited me as a teacher and a leader. Several years ago, I was chosen to represent our district as the only teacher, at the Standards Immersion Institute in Orlando, Florida. As a participant in this institute I was able to learn many cutting edge literacy strategies, collaborate and network with teachers and support staff from across the country, and mingle with the writers of the Common Core Standards. This opportunity and many like it have helped me refine my teaching practice and will hopefully make me an effective librarian.
I hope you will return to my blog often to comment, provide insight, and offer feedback while I meet the expectations for becoming a Library Media Science instructor. Looking forward to your visits.
