My classroom is not a quiet, orderly place.
Students are constantly moving, thinking, talking, reading and writing.
I do my best to help my students find success.

Celebrating Writing

Today I'm writing, here, on my blog, and there, in other places.

Here, I can share my thinking, my fears, my dreams.

There, it's informational writing.  It's important.  It's very intimidating.

Thankfully, I've been writing here since April 2011.
I've figured out that the hardest thing about writing is sitting down and writing.

Because of writing here, I am able to write there and not be too afraid.

Today I'm celebrating my writing stamina and my courage.

Today I celebrate all those who inspire me to write and share and press the publish button.

I am forever grateful!


  1. Lovely. A post for anyone who writes or wants to write. Thank you.

  2. I like the way you wound your way through your doubts to the possible, & the result of what is good for you.

  3. Courage and writing stamina...What wonderful reasons to celebrate!

  4. What is important is that you keep writing ... any writing helps writing! So keep on -- it's all important writing! You can do it HERE and you can do it THERE!

  5. And anywhere and everywhere! Keep writing! You inspire me!!
