This week, in preparation for Thanksgiving, students practiced writing persuasive pieces from a turkey or pigs point of view. Students selected one, and then tried to convince their audience to eat the other. These came out really cute so we displayed them in the hallway!
Sorry for the glare. I'm hoping to get a better digital camera for Christmas. Any suggestions? I'm pretty clueless when it comes to photography but my goal over Christmas break is to learn a little about picture taking. Blog posts are very visual. The first thing I notice when I visit someone's blog are their pictures. I want to improve on my photography skills so that I can provide you with the best blog posts possible.

Now...on to some good news! Today was a day of celebration! I found out my scores for National Board Certification and .......
I am now a National Board Certified Teacher! I am absolutely elated. I spent most of last school year ( and the summer before ) teaching, analyzing, writing, video taping, reflecting, and revising in preparation for this. I worked my little tail off. Thankfully, my hard work paid off. Jeff (my husband) bought me some flowers as a congratulations!
If your considering National Board Certification I can tell you first hand that it was the best professional development that I've ever had. I truly think the process strengthened my teaching and I am a better teacher because of it. I'd be happy to answer any questions that you have about the process.
