I've missed this space.
Taking a step away gives a new perspective.
Showing up is necessary for me. When I show up, I feel accomplished and proud. Here I am. Today is a celebration post. There is much to celebrate. My students. My writers. They have started blogging and they are already flying! Expressing themselves. Mining notebook pages to find something to post and share with the world. They are writers...entering writing contests and signing up for writing workshops.
I watch them show up every single day. They write. They read. They work. Being a student is hard and they show up smiling and giving it their all. I celebrate the students who sit in my classroom and take risks...the students who demonstrate their creativity in their notebooks and blogs...the students who recommend books to each other.
Thank you to Ruth Ayres for providing this space to share our celebrations. Please join us and share your own!
