It's Tuesday, and I have not been consistent in posting my "slice of life". This is what is on my mind lately. Our district had a writing cohort of teachers, who would meet once a month and participate in book studies, write and collaborate. We no longer have this, what we have now is a staff development cadre. Our focus is to create writing staff development for the district. I miss the cohort! I miss sitting together with a group of teachers who share the same writing philosophy and share the same concerns. There was something energetic about our meeting, I remember leaving the meeting feeling good about my teaching and conversations that had taken place. And, I really enjoyed the personal writing we did together. It's been several years since the writing cohort was changed to a staff development cadre. I miss, the reflection time, the collaboration, the friendships that developed with the teachers involved, and the inspiration.. Mostly, I miss the learning that took place. I also miss learning from one of my good friends & mentor...Tina.
-Tina, "Thank You," for your training and words of wisdom..
Thank you "Slice of Life" for the opportunity to Write!
