On a Personal Note...

Dear Readers,

First, thank you so much for reading any or all of my blog over the past year-and-a-half. It's hard to describe the feeling of finding out that writing about an idea or experience provides value to someone else. It's fulfilling. Sometimes surprising.

I wanted to let you know what I'll be up to this coming school year. I'm actually taking a year off from teaching in order to blog and create resources full time. I know I'm going to miss seeing a couple dozen third graders every day, but I am extremely excited and very thankful to have this new adventure.

I have no shortage of ideas, both stockpiled from this past year, and trickling in as we speak. Can you hear the trickle? So I plan to post more often during the upcoming school year, which I hope is a good thing for you. Stay tuned for a post or two in the coming weeks about organizing your literacy block!

Here's to building thinkers together!
