Hello and introduction

Hello, I'm Mrs. Gumby.  I teach English as a Second Language (ESL) at an elementary school.  My students are from more than ten different countries and all vary in their English language abilities.  The title of my blog, "Semper Gumby", is the informal motto I live by every day.   I never know from day to day what will drop into my lap, so I have to remain "Always Flexible"...just like Gumby!

I'm assisted by a wonderful paraprofessional, Mrs. Pokey.  I work daily with the lower level students (Emergents and Beginners) while Mrs. Pokey works two to three times per week with the upper level students (Intermediate and Advanced).  Together we make a dynamic team (or dynamite team, take your pick!).   So, pull up a chair and stay tuned for the further adventures of Mrs. Gumby.
