My students are thrilled to share this with you.

As a writing teacher and a writer, it has always made me insane when teachers have assigned writing as a punishment. I used to work with a teacher who made students copy a set number of paragraphs for particular actions. This made my job difficult when the same students would come to my class because they had no desire to write anything at all. As a mentor teacher, I address this with newer teachers to make sure they make better choices in regard to consequences for kids.

I had some issues with Blogger, so this post is divided into two.

I am constantly telling my students to dream big. My middle school campus has former students who are now in the NFL, who are professors, and who are Grammy award winning singers. What I have learned from all of my preaching is that I have not done enough practicing. With THEIR support, I am now pursuing my doctorate in reading. In order to convince others to dream big, we must do so ourselves.
