A Fork In My Road

Dear Two Writing Teachers Community,

My emotions are all jumbled up as I write this post to share bittersweet news. At the end of this month I will step away from my co-author role here at Two Writing Teachers. My work at the school where I teach is shifting and includes exciting new challenges for me. I will have the opportunity to spend time in Pre-K through fourth grade classrooms across all disciplines as I take on an instructional coaching role.  I’m excited because I always learn when I enter another teacher’s space. I’m excited because I love to collaborate with colleagues. I’m excited to support all of our teachers. But with this opportunity comes the realization that my time and resources for contributing here at TWT won’t be what they need to be in order to support this amazing space. And that makes me sad.

I will continue to slice. And I’ll  read posts and learn from co-authors and guest authors and published authors. I’ll keep sharing my learning from this forum. And I hope to contribute guest posts from time to time. I’m not saying goodbye, I’m saying see you around- here, and on Twitter, and at PD gatherings. Often I hope. Happy Summer to all of you.

My best,

  1. Lisa,
    What a fun time for you! You will be a great instructional coach and it’s so thoughtful of you to consider the time and effort that will be required in your new position. Literacy is such a huge part of all learning in the elementary that you are going to be super successful! We will miss you but also love connecting when possible! ❤


    • Thank you for all your support here. I will continue to look for your posts in the future. I am also seeking instructional coaching positions. You have contributed to an amazing resource for teachers!


  2. I would love to connect/network with you in your new role! I am an instructional coach in a PreK-6 building. We just finished the first year of writing workshop implementation. I love coaching, and just know my third year in this position will be great, but still have so much to learn; therefore, hope you contact me sometime!


  3. I’ve told it to you privately and now I’ll say it publicly, I’m delighted for you that you have this new position, but sad for “us.” You will be missed, Lisa. You’re welcome to come back and share your thinking with us on the blog anytime. You know where to find me. 🙂


  4. What a wonderful opportunity, especially the early literacy work in Pre-K. Enjoy those little faces and hearts alongside the bigger faces and hearts of 4th graders. Looking forward to reading your slices on your new adventure.


  5. You are wise not to stretch yourself too thinly. It sounds like a challenging assignment which will require all your attention for quite a while. We look forward to your participation at TWT in any form, and I wish you all the best in your new endeavor.


  6. Lisa, I’m sorry we didn’t get to spend more time together as co-authors. The team and the TWT community will miss you. But it seems the only constant in life is change. And so with that, allow me to wish you only the best in your new endeavors. Good luck, Lisa!
