Let’s just talk for a minute about how amazing my students are.

We’ll begin with my Writing Center students. All first quarter, we’ve been prepping to tutor, and today we had our first run. Wow. I couldn’t believe it: slipping in to tutoring like it was no big thing at all!

Like they’d been doing it their whole lives. There were some bumps, sure, but they got back on their feet and were TRIUMPHANT! We’re so excited about opening day.

Now let’s move on to my reading/English classes. We are using a Lit Circle approach with Patrick Ness’s A Monster Calls. I love how they are interacting with each other and taking turns reading with different lenses. They’re making good observations and asking the right questions. It’s  awesome to be a part of their  journies!
