I am sure it comes as no surprise that I will be taking a break from blogging. Our county has begun to implement a new curriculum that is taking up a great deal of time to figure out and manage. No more reading workshop for me, which is most unfortunate for my new crop of students. In addition, pregnancy is taking it's toll and between longer hours at work and real life, I just don't have the time or energy. I appreciate all of you for following my blog and caring about my ideas so much. Blogging has helped connect me to so many great teachers, and last year was my best year in teaching thanks to the encouragement I found in jumping into reading and writing workshop. Thank you for the support! I will hopefully get back into the blogging game after my leave is up. Until then, continue to spread the love of reading to your students!
