Yes- these two topics are unrelated, but I wanted to share them both today!
First- math focus wall.
I am so thrilled to be blogging for the school I received my Master's degree from! They contacted me a few weeks ago to ask if I would guest blog for them every two weeks or so! They have posted my second blog entry, which is about my math focus wall. Please please please head over and check it out! Leave a comment if you can! :) Click here to go to my blog entry at Marygrove!
Ok. On to the 2nd bit of randomness... the generosity of teachers!
One of the reasons I love blogging and running a website are all the wonderful teachers I have come in contact with over the years. I know that we may only ever speak via e-mail or a blog comment, but I feel like I know a whole lot of wonderful individuals who share this great profession.
I just wanted to thank one of them...
Yesterday I got a package in the mail from Amy T. and it was a box of books... NEW books!... that she wasn't using in her classroom! I am a total book-a-holic, so this was such a wonderful treat for me! She even sent a handmade thank you card! :)
I just wanted to put a shout out and a thank you to her and to everyone else who has brightened my day with a kind word via e-mail, blog comment, book from my Amazon Wish-list, donation to a Donor's Choose project, or even a simple post on a message board. I am so glad that other people can find ideas from my classroom helpful!
Thank you, teacher friends! It always makes me proud to work with such a caring group of people... teachers really are the best!
