Do you have a need for some Slicer swag before March begins?  Stop by and visit our Cafepress store.  You can purchase T-shirts, keychains, tote bags, and more while doing a good deed since all of the profits from our store go to the Pajama Program!

Finally, please mark your calendar if you’re a Slicer who will be at the ILA 2016 Conference in Boston this summer. Beth and I will attend the conference. Therefore, we’re looking forward to hosting a Slicer Breakfast on Sunday morning, July 10th at 8:00 a.m. Location TBA.

    1. Blogging has changed my life. Now I practice writing every week…a self-imposed,, much enjoyed discipline. Every week I get responses from people I admire and respect as teachers and writers. What more could a writer ask for than a responsive audience! In the one year that I have been blogging I have developed “friendships” and a community that I am proud to be part of so there’s kinship (which is important for a retiree who no longer has a community to belong to every day). Every week I learn new ideas, read about important books to use for teaching and for personal professional development…and all for free! I have also discovered so many other blogging sites through weekly blogging. Some of them allow me to pursue personal interests while others allow me to make new connections for writing. Through blogging I have experienced all the ups and downs of being a writer so I can have more empathy for students who are struggling with revision, writer’s block, and the like. All this, and so much more, is why I urge you to blog. But watch out. It can be addictive!
