Hello Again!

It has been nearly six months since I wrote my last post and a lot has happened since then! For starters, I completed my master’s program in literacy education in May. Pending the results of my exam, I will soon be a certified literacy specialist for birth thru 12th grade. In other news, I accepted a position as a special education teacher in a local school district where I will be co-teaching 2nd grade in the morning and providing ELA and math instruction to a small group of 4th graders in the afternoon. I am beyond thrilled to be part of this tight-knit school community. Although our school year has not yet officially begun, I have been getting to know many of my colleagues and busily working to make my classroom an inviting and inspiring place to learn. Pictures will be, undoubtedly, forthcoming. *smiles*

I do have two posts in the works. One is about the use of reading logs in elementary school. The other has to do with “leveling” classroom libraries. (I’ve been more active on Twitter lately, which provides no shortage of inspiration.) Of course, now that I will be in the classroom, there will be lots more posts about books, literacy, learning, and what it’s like to be a first-year teacher.

Stay tuned!
