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.
Please note that the content of this blog is my own. It does not reflect the opinions of my employer.

  1. My eight-year-old granddaughter, Fiona, visiting from Michigan, came rushing into the kitchen looking for the salt shaker. There was a slug on the frog she had netted from the pond. On her way out, shaker in hand, she turned. “Grammy, even though I promise the shaker won’t touch the slug make sure you wash the top when I bring it back in… even though I promise it won’t touch it. Just in case, wash it.”
    Thanks, Tara, for reminding me of Mary Oliver’s words: “Pay attention. Be astonished. Write about it.”
