Read Write and Play is celebrating its first birthday and the milestone of 100 followers thanks to all of you dear readers.
This summer was filled with more and more of your thoughtful questions, great stories, and beautiful cities. I celebrated hard work in person with teachers in Wisconsin, Texas, and Seattle. I met teachers from all over the country as well as teachers from schools in South America, Asia, Africa, Europe, and Australia at the summer institutes at Teachers College. I can see all of you from all corners of the globe looking at pictures here on the blog. Thank you for being part of this community.
I wish you all a great school year and many happy stories with your students. I'll be here and will continue to post all the things that inspire my teaching as well as the teaching I see in your classrooms that inspires me.
I took this picture at the Ace Hotel after having dinner with some of my teacher friends in NYC this summer. I think it will be my back-to-school mantra. It reminds us all to dig deep, take a risk, and teach our hearts out.
