2012 - I write about a student who rescues me from my Friday night funk and provides fodder for my slice. *I was delighted to discover this comment from my brother, a fellow educator.Ramona, I love that they are your students forever. Reminds me of what I always tell my clients that go through my Starting & Running a Business 101 class. I tell them that they have lifetime rights to me -- that they can always come back for help or a sounding board for new ideas they want to try in their business.
And that's the kind of educator and person that he was! We miss him.
2013, 2014, & 2020 - I write about our book club retreat, a yearly event held annually in March until 2020. Now we've missed three years of gathering. Maybe we can meet later this year. We still meet virtually to pick our books for the upcoming year.
2015 & 2019 - I write posts inspired by fellow slicers: Heidi at Wordsmithing inspires my job description and Kim & Elsie inspire an illustrated cinquain.
2016 - A four-pawed guest becomes the mascot of our after school book club, Books, Brownies, & Beyond.
2017 - I write a mediation on badges. Can we create a hybrid badge (plantsers) for slicers who usually fly by the seat of their pants (pantsers), but occasioanally manage to plan (planners) a slice?
2018 - I write a post about moon books and a moon poem. Update: I need to add my latest discovery, The Children's Moon (2021) by Carmen Agra Deedy to the two favorites I spotlighted in this post: Owl Moon (1987) and When the Moon Comes (2017).
2021 - I join Leigh Anne's slicer party!
2022 - I write about Day 16 through the years and celebrate my favorite day of the challenge.
