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. For me, performing in front of a crowd=pressure. I allowed piano recitals, and the mounting pressure that accompanied them, to rob me of my love of playing. How many of my students feel that same angst when they take the stage, sharing their words with an audience? I hope they will tell me if the pressure is robbing them of their joy. I hope I will be wise enough to know and intervene.
