First Post EVER!

This is my first post. I am a teacher, a talker, and I love combining these for teacher training. I hope my blog serves to be a place for inspiration, explanation and a love of all things learning.
I have decided to throw my hat into the blogging world.  If you know me, you'll know I love to talk. I also like to teach and to help other teachers.

Teaching writing is my favorite thing.  I hope to share lots of tips and techniques, lots of strategies for survival and success, lots of encouragement, and lots of love.  I'm not a big quote person, unless it's quoting my kindergartners, but I love what Ben Franklin said about "good enough."

"If better is possible, good is not enough."  ~ Ben Franklin

I completely agree.  Too many teachers get in a rut with "good enough" practices for kids, "good enough" for the test, "good enough" for this lesson.  I like to strive for better.  I hope to share some things I think are "better" ideas about teaching writing.

Let me know what you think.
