I thought what better way to start back blogging but by spending some time learning and growing with some fellow bloggers. I tell my coworkers that when I stop wanting to learn then it is time for me to get out of the education field. I think this is where so many teachers fail; teaching is a profession where you have to want to learn and grow or you will fall behind.
This is why I am so excited about this collaborative blogger book study that I found that is starting soon! I am really jealous that the bloggers that started this study just got back from a trip to the Ron Clark Academy. I REALLY want to go there one day!
I have heard great things about Marcia L. Tate, but I have never taken the time to read one of her books. I can't wait to see what I learn from this book and to start applying it to my first grade jungle room. :)
If you want to join along, buy the book and let's get started! (I just ordered mine on Amazon!) You don't have to be a blogger. You can participate by joining in the conversation by adding comments to the blog posts.
Here is the plan for the linky parties:
