“There is, of course, always the personal satisfaction of writing down one’s experiences so they may be saved, caught and pinned under glass, hoarded against the winter of forgetfulness. Time has been cheated a little, at least in one’s own life, and a personal, trivial immortality of an old self assured. And there is another personal satisfaction: that of the people who like to recount their adventures, the diary-keepers, the story-tellers, the letter-writers, a strange race of people who feel half cheated of an experience unless it is retold. It does not really exist until it is put into words.”

― Anne Morrow Lindbergh, North to the Orient

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. Gosh, I’ve missed you all! I haven’t been able to squeeze time for slicing into the midst of letters to the editor, letters to university administration, and contributing to a 100-page report as we band alumni try to defend our honor. (If you’re interested in that added dimension of my writing life this fall, some of it’s posted on the TBDBITL Alumni Club website.)

    However, I (mostly) wrote this in class alongside my students as we explore our class motto, so I get to join you this Tuesday! http://ihabloespanglish.blogspot.com/2014/10/what-it-takes.html

    • Lisa, I’m having a hard time commenting on your blog today – not sure what is happening. I decided to just leave my comment here instead. I think hard work leads to success. And the willingness to take a risk.
