How Was Summer Week 1?

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Saturday, June 16, 2012,
How was your first week of summer?  Mine was good except did you know I teach a 3 week class that started on Tuesday?  I have 20 new students and I am teaching them all about being a lawyer.  They are ok but they are not the fabulous class I had to offer up to 6th grade next year--I mean you guys.  I guess I'll survive, I just miss you guys.

So far the only people I've seen are Rachel (at her softball game) and Jordan (at her new store).  Where are the rest of you?  I saw Lauryn from Ms. Stams...

Have you heard of flash mobs?  What do you think of having class mobs?  Someone can name a time and place to meet and say "hey" to each other.  I think our first one should be at cup n cone on Saturday.  Can you make it?  Blog a comment to let me know.  We can take a picture and I'll put it on the student tab.  Come one, come all.

The First Annual Villege Carnival was a Huge Success

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Sunday, June 3, 2012,
Wow, I was so proud of you guys and the coolio games you engineered and the generous way you ran them at our carnival.  Also, you worked really hard to set it all up and then move it and then get it all cleaned up when it was over.  Way to go, 5th graders.  You are ready to move on to middle school.  Enjoy your weekend.  We only have 4 days left!  Yikes!

He also has taken classes at a seminary. He wrote a book called "The Historia" which you can buy on He was a hockey player and played college hockey at Bethel. His wife is a lawyer worked at a big law firm in Minneapolis. Cool! Hey, guess what. I am a lawyer too!! This will be my 13th year teaching as I practiced law for over 15 years. Teaching is way more fun!! Now they are living in Turkey and simply trying to learn the language and make connections. This year my son will be teaching high school world history at an international school. __________My son Jim lives in Blaine with his wife Courtney. They both graduated from Winona State where they were star pitchers on their baseball and softball teams. Jim graduated from St. Thomas School of Law. He clerked for a judge and now he works for a law firm in Golden Valley. His wife graduated from Des Moines University Medical School where she studied to be a physical therapist.

He, like his brothers was a good athlete and loved sports. He also is a great singer and performer and was Danny Zuko in Grease, Gaston in Beauty and the Beast, and Curly in Oklahoma--all in WBL high school. He has a teaching license and did some long term subbing in WBL most recently at Hugo Elementary School. Next he worked at Infinite Campus training teachers on software that his employer makes.

He spends his day writing code to create games. He loves that kind of writing, do you? He taught many of my students to write code in Scratch. _________Vlad officially became our son in June of 2010 although we have loved him since we met him a couple years before that. We traveled to his homeland, Latvia, 3 times to make him ours. He has been living with us since March of 2010. He graduated from WBL High School too.
