1,000,000

Yesterday we hit a new milestone on Two Writing Teachers — over ONE MILLION hits!  Thank you for your support and encouragement.

In honor of one million, would you take a minute to leave a comment with your general location, as well as your job title?  I thought it would be neat to see the truly diverse community we all are a part of in this online space.

So whether you regularly leave comments or have never left one, will you leave one today? We appreciate you and would like you to be recognized as a reader!

  5. I am a sixth grade language arts teacher at Versailles, Ohio, a small rural school district north of Dayton, Ohio. LOVE your blog. (Will try to comment more.) I enjoy Words That Are Speaking to Me…use some of them in class and have tweaked the idea to use in my classroom. My students look for quotes in their own reading.

  12. I am a 3rd grade teacher in Milwaukee, WI. Congratulations on your 1,000,000 hit. That is amazing! There are so many of us in America, striving, ever striving to become even better at our craft. If you have not seen “Waiting for Superman” I would urge you to take the time to see it. Although there are wonderful and inspiring parts, there are also sad, horrible parts. None of it will really surprise you because almost all of us have seen some it in our own buildings.

    Thank you for the creation of a spot for teachers to commiserate, but also to celebrate!

  22. @Elsie: We’re looking forward to its release too. The book should be back from the publisher this-coming November. However, I don’t know when it will be shipping. My guess is that you should have it a week or two later. If you want to be sure, you could always contact Stenhouse at their office in Portland, ME.

    Thanks for your support and kind words.

  32. When I started reading your blog, I was a third grade teacher at a Title I school in Missouri. I was desperate for ideas on how to make writing more meaningful for my students. Little did I know, writing would become more meaningful for me, too!

    Now, I’m a literacy coach, using many of the things I’ve learned from you guys, to inspire other teachers to make reading/writing more meaningful for their students. And hopefully, themselves too.

    Congrats on 1,000,000 hits. Think of how many students your work has reached!
