Good evening Dr. DiSpagna and classmates. In today's module 2 discussion I mention the comic strip Calvin & Hobbes by Bill Watterson and Calvin and Hobbes' favorite game, Calvinball. Below are some pictures of Calvin and Hobbes playing Calvinball. I add these because I loved reading Calvin & Hobbes. One reason was because of Calvin's vivid imagination. Enjoy! Thank you, Cissy

Me at three

Good evening Dr. DiSpagna and classmates. Attached is a picture of me when I was three. I'm "skiing" with my mom and dad in Ruidoso, NM. I can't quite remember this age but I do remember starting around age four and I can remember how vivid my imagination was. This was two years before I started Kindergarten and almost three years before my sister was born. Those were two huge events in my early life. Now I have a niece who is three (picture of me and her before going to the zoo) and I love spending time with her! She is so bright and so inquisitive and I love watching her develop. Thank you, Cissy

Introduction-My Early Childhood Blog

Good evening Dr. DiSpagna and classmates. My name is Cissy Mattingly and I'm a Coordinator for the Fort Worth ISD in Fort Worth, TX. I am currently working on my Ed.D. in Early Childhood Education. I am exciting to blogging about early childhood and I look forward to reading my classmates blogs. I taught Pre-K and I was a librarian before becoming a Coordinator. I know it is said all the time, children are our future, but I truly believe it and I hope to help the children and parents of my community. I believe we should help children gain access to every possible resource to help them be successful. Thank you, Cissy
