Slice of Lifer
For 31 days, you blogged day and night, from different countries, time zones and classrooms
Sometimes, you felt like you had nothing to write
Sometimes, you smiled as you shared about a memorable memory with your students
Sometimes, you struggled to get what was inside to come out on your screen
Sometimes, you were encouraged by the comments of other slicers
Sometimes, you wanted to scream, but instead you blogged about it
Sometimes, you learned from others through the power of words
Sometimes, you were moved deeply by life and you wrote about it.
Sometimes, you realized how hard it is to write every single day
Sometimes, you were amazed at the strong community of writers that can form on the Internet
Sometimes, you fell asleep with the laptop by your side and post still unwritten.
Sometimes, you were surprised at how people responded to your slice
Sometimes, you wrote slices instead of doing grading or dealing with paperwork.
Sometimes, you wrote about the matters of your heart, your students and your passion for teaching.
Sometimes, you wanted to stop, but you kept going.
I am so happy to say that I did it.
Now it’s time to celebrate with some poetry from our classroom poetry wall. A special thanks to slicer Diana for sharing about this link yesterday. I had some students write emotional animal poems & love that poems today. They were amazing!
