For last year’s words belong to last year’s language
And next year’s words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.
~T.S. Eliot, “Little Gidding”
How appropriate that the year ends on a Slice of Life Tuesday! Here’s to ending a wonderful year of meeting on Tuesdays to share our writing, our lives, our musings…and raising a toast to the new year to come, when we will continue to gather. Happy New Year wishes from all of us at Two Writing Teachers (Stacey, Anna, Betsy, Beth, Dana and myself) to all of you – may it be a year of blessings enjoyed and discovered, ties strengthened and renewed, memories cherished and crafted, adventures launched and celebrated…and writing. Let there be writing!
(Some Twitter updates for us to keep track of: the new hashtag for the Slice of Life Story Challenge for 2014 is #sol14. And the official Two Writing Teachers hashtag is #TWTBlog.)
I teach Writing Workshop, Language Arts and Social Studies to sixth graders at a middle school in suburban New Jersey. This blog is my attempt to capture all the "stuff" that goes into my teaching life - the planning, the dreaming, the reading, the preparing, the hoping and (above all) the kids.
