If you've spent any time with me in person or on this blog, you are aware that my experience getting coached in the Comprehensive Literacy Model has completely transformed me. I went from dreading teaching reading and writing to becoming obsessed with it. A sixth- and seventh-grade language arts position opened up at our middle school shortly after the school year ended and it caught my eye instantly. While I'm so, so sad to leave Barrie, I know that this new position will offer me opportunities to practice what I know at a different level and learn even more along the way.
At this point, I have no plans to 'shut down' LifeIn4B, as I hope the ideas I used in my fourth-grade classrroom will continue to inspire you for as long as you need inspiration. I'm hoping to start up a new blog (or continue writing on this one) for what teaching and learning looks like in our middle-school language arts classroom. Lastly, thank you for your support in my journey. LifeIn4B has helped me connect with so many of you out there who have the same passion, mission, and vision for our youngsters as I do! Keep on keepin' on!
