Welcome to a stream of ideas as I venture on a journey to develop young writers. This blog will be influenced by my current reading list, conferences, colleagues, your comments and of course the students I work with each day. The connection between all forms of early literacy will also frequent the blog and their importance in the writing process for young learners.
The other night after I published my 100th post I went back and re-read almost all of my previous 99 posts. It was very neat to read through the journey I have begun and to see myself growing, struggling and learning. This blog has been such a great experience for me, so positive! It has pushed me to read, learn, write and reflect not just as a teacher but as a person too! I have met so many people who are amazing and it has renewed my confidence. So, I guess this little slice is a slice of gratitude and appreciation for all of those people out there who inspire me to be better! Thank you!
