Think back to a “Best Time of Your Life”. Where were you? What were you doing? What made it “THE BEST”?
If you were to return to that place of your “Best Time of Your Life” right this minute, do you think it would be exactly as you remember it?

“We come from . . .”
A call to action from Lucy Calkins.
Ignite the passion
In our students.
“Don Murray: Writing is not easy nor should it be.”
We don’t just recount.
We make meaning in our writing.
To celebrate the day’s end
A double rainbow
Ready to begin anew!
June Writing Institute 2013
And yet, filling a hole in my teacher soul
June Writing Institute 2014
Back to fill in the holes in my knowledge
Back to “be with my tribe”
Still anxious about all I did NOT know
June Writing Institute 2015
Armed with a plan
Specific session criteria
And questions for staff developers.
June Writing Institute 2016
Finally knowing “something”
Writing before, during, and after
Adding new knowledge
Consolidating and validating previous learnings
and this year, waiting for
August Writing Institute 2017
Because there’s no place like home with your writerly friends
The Learning at
Teachers College Reading and Writing Project!
So this week I’m following along on Twitter
Checking in for “learning bread crumbs”
Planning for that return to “My Best Learning Place on Earth”!
#TCRWP Writing Institute and #TCRWP Reading Institute
I already know that even though I’m attending in August this year, #TCRWP Writing and Reading Institutes will be better than ever! Much writing and reading (and tweets) before then . . . See you soon!
Where do you go for inspiration?
That feeling of “belonging”?
And yet, where you are also “pushed” to be a better you, a stronger you, a more capable you?
