    I retired last year, and I too was a Readers and Writers Workshop gal. I too walked that path alone in my school. I found such joy with the kids growing in so many ways. I used literature for mini-lessons to spur the kids on. We had such great conversations. I had taught grades 1-6 throughout my career so I experienced kids on many levels of growth. Keep walking the path...there is no other like it. The Book Whisperer...yes, what amazing things you can learn from the kids.

    Do you live in Northern Virginia? Check out Shenandoah University's ( in Winchester) Children's Literature Conference that is held each June. It is fantastic!!! It is inspiring to sit at the feet of authors and hear their stories. You can earn 2-3 grad credits or simply audit the course.

    If you ever need a cheerleader, I am here to spur you on. Thank you for being a teacher.
