Currently I'm ...

Today I join my fellow bloggers in "serving up a slice" to the Tuesday Slice of Life sponsored by Stacey and Ruth from Two Writing Teachers.

Listening:  to nothing...It's time to check out a new book on CD from the library 
(Anyone have a good recommendation?)
Needing:  to sort through the hodge-podge of papers that I brought home from the first day
Anticipating:  the activities of the next few days as I get to know my new students
Hoping:  that former students will drop by tomorrow for cookie bars, their sweet reward for posting on our Sweet Summer Reads blog
Reading:  Mr. Lemoncello's Library 
Wishing:  that I hadn't left it (Mr. Lemoncello's Library) on my desk at school
Striving:  to help this year's students catch a vision of themselves as writers and readers
Loving:  this quote from Looking for the Write Words,  "The good news for me is the act of writing and the writing of others is helping me to look closer at the world around me and to be a better listener.   I want to notice and wonder, and linger and learn."


  1. The first day is soooo exhausting! I hope it will be a great year for you. I absolutely love that final sentence! Notice, wonder, linger, learn - those are words to live by.

  2. I just love hearing from you sweet Ramona. We do look closer, I love that quote. I wanted to tell you that my sweet niece is moving to your island for an internship. She just graduated from Wheaton in June. xo

    1. When will she get here? Let me know so I can drop by with cookies and a NW welcome!
