What's Happened Since April?

After completing National Board re-certification,

finishing a year with a group of amazing sixth graders,

planning a wedding and getting married to the most wonderful man in the world,

honeymooning in St. Lucia,

packing up my old life and moving to a new city,

working over the summer with great teachers and teacher leaders in Ohio, Nova Scotia, Alabama, and Iowa,

and beginning a school year (for the first time in 17 years) without a classroom of students.....

I am officially welcoming myself back to the blogging world!

Tomorrow begins an exciting blogging event!

Two brilliant friends, Cathy Mere (Refine and Reflect), and Mandy Robek
(Enjoy and Embrace Learning) will be hosting this event beginning TOMORROW! You can find out more about the event on their blogs, and I'll also be posting my TOP TEN favorite picture books!
It will be a great way for us to learn new titles and find out the story behind these favorites.
We hope you'll join us!

As my wonderful middle school principal, Phyllis Faust, always said in her daily emails to us...... "To the possibilities...."
