March SOLC–Day 13
A huge thank you to Anna, Beth, Betsy, Deb, Kathleen, Lisa, Lanny, Melanie, and Stacey for all that they do to create a supportive community of writers and a safe, welcoming space to write, learn, share and grow.
I always enter the classroom with a bit of trepidation after having a Guest Teacher, as I’m never quite sure what I’ll find. On Friday I took a Personal Day. This morning I beelined to my desk to check for notes. At the bottom of my sub plans was scrawled: “We had a great day!” There was even a smiley face. Phew! That’s a relief!
As I set down my bags, I noticed some student writing next to the sub plans. I’d left plans for the kids to have some free writing time, and apparently one of them had opted to write an essay. She left it on my desk for me to enjoy.
Talk about a wonderful welcome back to school! Sanity Saver #8 from my post yesterday (here) was unexpected notes from students. I certainly didn’t expect to get one today. What a great way to start the week!
