    Wow, Fran! You are soaking up the summer learning! I’m excited about #cyberPD and chatting about WW. I want to check out #These6Things! Happy reading and learning … and sharing your thoughts with all of us!

    1. Michelle,
      I am a learning-aholic. Talking/chatting about my learning helps me cement it! See you on #cyberPD!

  2. I respect the way you continue to learn about teaching — diving into books and a workshop. By enriching your knowledge and keeping it fresh, you do a great service to your students — offering them the gift of curiosity, experimentation, and instruction, as you apply what you have learned. I hope you enjoy the program!

    1. Diane,
      Always growing . . .
      Always more to learn . . .

  3. I just devoured Colleen’s book!!!! Loved it!!! I am having a quieter summer. I planned out lots to read and write but also need some solitude so not reaching out for a virtual book club this year and not going to TC. Instead, I’m rereading my past notes and plan to read LOTS of books. After a skype session with Avi, I am inspired to read his Poppy series! As I read Ragweed today, I am connecting it to the way people are being treated at the border of Mexico right now. Will I ever live in a world where the have’s treat the have-nots kindly? Happy Summer of personal PD and reading time!! I hope you get some grandma time in too! On a different note, my oldest is working for the Executive Committee for the Cory Booker Campaign. If you have the chance to attend a Cory Event in Iowa, do! Because of her job, I’ve been following him. I especially like his mom!

    1. Sally,
      I have also dug into some old notes to decipher the messages that I missed (or forgot). And I saw Cory last month at an event. Lots of Iowa connections!

  4. Yay for summer PD. I am always surprised when some colleagues insist they will do nothing related to their job in the summer but know that everyone has their own way. I am finishing up an online course in the next day or so and look forward to other online (and some in person) summer PD!

    1. Erika,
      I have to have combinations of both. There is nothing like hearing the real voices behind the books F2F after online or book reading!

  5. Love the peek into your summer learning. You’re inspiring me to get going on more professional reading. Thank you, Fran!

    1. You are welcome, Melanie! I am so looking forward to your book for even greater professional reading!

  6. Although summer was a way to recharge after a hectic school year it was never, at least for me, a time to stop learning. There are always new things to learn, old friends to revisit, new ways of tackling old problems. Learning doesn’t stop just because it is June (or you are retired).

    1. As long as I am alive, there will be learning! YES! The pacing of learning changes, but not the NEED! ❤

  7. Your reading pile is sky-high with opportunities for learning! Thanks for the book recommendations; I see some online book shopping in my very near future…

  8. Fran,
    As always you great provide PD resources. I am thinking about venturing to Colleen Cruz’s new books.

    1. Julianne, you will love them.
