Unscramble the Teacher’s Motto

When I moved to RI, I borrowed a motto from a former colleague, Halli, in New York. She had a BIG sign over her door that read, “We will work hard, but we will have fun.”

I was playing around with Wordle tonight and created a scrambled motto for my class. I’m thinking about attaching it to a News & Announcements Chart at Morning Meeting to see if they (in small groups) can unscramble the motto since I often write it at the bottom of my Morning Meeting Charts.

I am a literacy consultant who focuses on writing workshop. I've been working with K-6 teachers and students since 2009. Prior to that, I was a fourth and fifth-grade teacher in New York City and Rhode Island.

I'm the author of Craft Moves (Stenhouse Publishers, 2016) and the co-author of Jump Into Writing (Zaner-Bloser, 2021), Welcome to Writing Workshop (Stenhouse Publishers, 2019), and Day By Day (Stenhouse, 2010).

I live in Central Pennsylvania with my husband and children. In my free time, I enjoy swimming, doing Pilates, cooking, baking, making ice cream, and reading novels.

    You were so generous to share this site with me when we met in Carl Anderson’s group this summer. Thanks!! This is a wonderful blog and I like the motto, too!


  2. this epitomizes not only how i try to look at my work, but how i want my students to view life, learning, school, endeavors that challenge them to grow: hard fun. now it’s up to me to provide them with said worthwhile challenges.
