I love ending the week with celebrations! Thank you Ruth!
Please join us and share your celebrations!
I celebrate my favorite season...AUTUMN!
I've noticed the colors that greet me each morning, the brilliant skies each evening and the gorgeous leaves shining on the trees.
I celebrate authors, in particular, Sharon Draper. I got the opportunity to hear her speak this week and I loved every moment of it. From the moment her talk began, I could see the teacher in her! She captivated the audience and a couple of my students came out to hear her! What an amazing night!!
I celebrate ZONE Day in class. The final day of the quarter is a celebration of reading. We read. Ninety minutes of reading. It's like the best day of the year. Here are some of my students after they've settled in to their books. What a joy it is to witness this and be a part of it!!! (I read two and a half books!!)
I celebrate my PLN! I celebrate the ideas that you share with me. Each of you makes me a better teacher! I see it everyday in my classroom. In hopes of sharing the value of PLNs with other teachers, JB Reynolds (@jbreynoldsTRT), a fellow teacher, and I decided to start a Twitter Chat for the teachers in our county!
Our first one will be this Thursday night at 8pm EST. #LCPSedchat. All are welcome! We will be discussing being a connected educator! Here are our questions:
- What does being a CE mean to you?
- Where do you go to connect?
- Advantages to being a CE?
- How do you encourage others to connect?
- How has it changed you as an educator?
- Who do you follow?
Our hope is MORE teachers discover the value of creating their own personal PLN. I celebrate YOU!! (Please join our chat, even if you don't teach in our county!!)
Finally I celebrate Bella! My sweet Bella seems to be making much better choices after our training with Nancy! She's calmer and loves to sit with me whenever she gets the chance. I'm so grateful!
|Sweet Bella kisses!|
|Her favorite place to sit in the living room.|
|So much fun to cuddle in the chair together!|
|She loves to cuddle in bed now!|
