being a teacher, being me

Oh the Great Things I Get to Do

I am so lucky when others ask me to join their webcast, blogs, or podcasts and the last few weeks were no different.  My incredible friend, Katie Hellerman, interviewed me for her blog The Teaching Game on how I balance family and school (spoiler: I don’t!).  That really made me think.

Then I got to moderate the culminating event for one of our books in the GRA; a live webcast with Sharon Draper!  She had never done one before so I was super nervous, thankfully Sharon was as incredible as her book and even said she had a great time.  

Then I also had the wonderful pleasure of being a guest on the EduAllStar webcast and much fun was had.  I always get terribly nervous when I have no idea what we are going to discus, but Todd and Chris made it a great experience.  My husband, Brandon, always says I do my best when I am candid, so judge for yourself.

One of my all-time favorite authors Kirby Larson (have you read Hattie Big Sky?- if not please do!) asked me to guest blog for her.  Um yes!  So Tuesday I got to give thanks to all of the authors that have paved the way for the Global Read Aloud.  What an incredible honor that was.

And finally, EdCampMadWI – which stands for Edcamp Madison, WI is opening up for registration this Thursday!  It will take place on January 25th, 2014 at the amazing Sun Prairie High School and I would love to see you there!  So join me please, for an incredible day of learning and sharing, free food and fun goodies.

And while I have a nagging feeling there is something else, that is ll my pregnancy tired brain can remember for right now.  So check it out if you want to see what I have been up to.
