  1. Jaidin,
    We walked together in graduation, how awesome!
    I love how open you are about your experiences with your personal life. I have a very similar experience, although my stepdad didn’t adopted me, he did have my last name legally changed in eight grade and that was special for me.
    Good luck with the remainder of the school year as far as teaching goes. I can’t wait to work with you more as the semester progresses.



  2. Hi Jaidin,

    First off, I want to let you know I admire how open you are to telling your story! I can tell from your video you really appreciate where you came from, and I think it is awesome you still have your adoption papers. I actually am adopted too, and I still have my papers to remind me how lucky I am to have my adoptive parent to raise me. In my situation, I have an adoptive mother. I also wanted to say congratulations on getting your first teaching job right away in a school you enjoy. I am looking forward to hearing more about your math teaching experience because I also teach high school math, but Algbra 1 instead of 2.


    1. Jaidin,
      What an amazing story! I think that is an amazing artifact and I am so glad you shared that with us! It was also great to see the comments you received because I bet we would not have known that fact about any of our colleagues if you didn’t share your story! I wish you the best of luck with the rest of your leave replacement and look forward to working with you this semester!


  3. Hi Jaidin,
    I also graduated from SUNY Oneonta this past May! Congrats on the leave replacement, that must be so exciting! That is a great artifact, my “half” brother was adopted as well by my father , although I never think of him as my “half” brother but he also took my father’s last name.
    I am looking forward to working with you this semester!
