When your words resonate with other educators
Nothing is more gratifying than knowing my blog has provided content that other educators and publishers find valuable, accurate, and practical. And that means even more when you realize that my website is basically one giant exercise in reflection. And any teacher knows that reflection is the heart and soul of teaching. As we reflect, we improve. What doesn’t work one year, may work better after we reflect, tweak, and try it again. Even more, what works one year, may work even better upon reflection.
It’s affirming to see that my reflective experiences resonate with other educators and reminds me that I’m not alone in this work. In fact, we all have common experiences and wisdom to share.
This week, I’ve listed six websites that have featured links to various blog posts from this site on a handful of ELA topics… reading and writing instruction, the use (or non-use) of technology in the classroom, and others. (Note: The McGraw Hill article does not appear on my blog; it was written specifically for the publisher.)

Also, can you believe that for many schools in the U.S., third quarter is more than half over??? I literally can’t believe this school year is heading toward the final months. Unbelievable.
