July 8-12 Clarice Smith National Teacher Institute!

I’m so happy for summer to be here and to take a few moments to breathe and regroup. I’m finishing my Yoga Teacher Training, and getting ready to participate in the Clarice Smith National Teacher Institute at the Smithsonian Museum of Art in Washington D.C! This summer I was selected to participate in this amazing professional development program for English Language Arts teachers and I’m going to be blogging about the experience here! I’m hoping to connect with other teaching forums and share teaching practices and ideas here also 🙂


Where did my 27, 28, 29, 30, & 31 posts go?

Well to be honest I became so swamped with deadlines for my Masters, work, and life that I physically was unable to write and post on those last few days of the writing challenge. Update on my Masters: I graduated!! I finished my last semester with all A’s, and I’m now the happy owner of a shiny new MA degree in Teaching English Language Arts. I loved the Slice of Life Challenge and hope to start participating in the Tuesday (weekly) SOL.

Am I really this anal?

I’m thinking of setting up my writing challenge as follows: Poetry Weekends, Cooking Mondays, Gardening Tuesdays, Wishes on Wednesdays, Traveling Thursdays, Wild Card Fridays.  If I do it this way I know what I am to write about on what days and give some sort of order to this task 🙂
