Hi friends! This blog is for teachers and families- all for the sheer joy of literacy. When we are enthusiastic about reading and writing our students and our own kids become excited to read and write. I hope that we all can be models for those in our care- how did you show your passion for reading, writing, learning, language, or words today?? It's in those small, daily moments that we teach kids to love literacy.

What are your thoughts on Michelle Rhee? Do you think this video is mostly accurate? Or, do you find that her drastic cuts are just what we need to keep bad teachers out of the classroom? In a recent Newsweek article she told the public that even though she stepped down from her position in DC, she's not done fighting yet.
"Michelle Rhee claims she won the battle for DC public schools. But can you win a war when you're firing on your own troops?" from the youtube post.
