I am so grateful to be a part of this writing community. Week after week, we write and share and take time out of our busy teaching-living-running around lives to reach out to each other and comment on each others’ slicing. It is just that act of purposeful commitment to commenting and thereby encouraging each other to keep at it…to write no matter what. How lucky we are that we can do this, week after week, month after month, year after year. What an amazing writing community!
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.
