Due to the overload of the events this week (and the great weather here in the Bay Area) I have completely s-l-a-c-k-e-d in the blogging department. I had high hopes of maintaining a schedule and blogging daily. While I LOVE that idea in theory, I really don't think it's manageable. But, I'm here now. I'll try to be consistent. And away we go....
I really enjoyed being at school today. We had to say goodbye to our rising 5th graders and dedicated staff that have been with us for a while. Transition is hard, and it feels like we've been a school in constant flux for the past 3 years. In the face of unwanted change and hard financial times our school did a great job of appreciating folks for a job well done. It was lovely to have a day celebrating all of our hard work over the course of this year.

Syllabus Writing: My husband and I are co-teaching a 6-unit Lit Assessment and Lit Development course for an online teacher ed program this fall through the collaborative effort of Aspire Public Schools and the University of the Pacific. We need to craft a mighty fine syllabus. I'm looking forward to this (I really enjoyed teaching the class last semester), but it's going to be a plateful. What do you wish you knew before you started teaching? If you have any tips, share in the comments below. I'm excited about our main text, Teaching Reading in the 21st Century by Michael Graves.
