We wish you…

It’s that time again, when everyone takes stock of all the good things that have happened during the year, and say bah humbug to all the things that didn’t go as well, and then we top all of it off with crazy sparkly outfits and binge drinking. And to that end, the office dino and I say…

Merry Christmas!

See you in 2011.

First we sing... "O, Christmas tree..."

Next, we eat peppermint bark.

Do I have any in my teeth?

    Hi Tracey
    Ho ho ho and happy holidaze. I stumbled to your site when I was checking the computer filters our district’s tech dept. has installed and there you were!
    Sometimes important “stuff” finds us at the right time in our lives!

    I have quickly read some of your posts and am now very interested in getting your book for my student library. I am a local, covert, educational activist in my school district. Actually I am overt, but struggling to remain diplomatic as I advocate for my students.
    I have started a blog (but have it blocked to the outside world at this point in time), not sure IF and HOW I want to utilize the opportunity…except maybe to connect to like minds and share creative ideas, etc.
    So I am writing here to let you know I am excited to read more of your blog, as I like your style. And from first impression I seem to like your pedagogy as well. I also wanted to invite you to check out my blog so you could offer any advice you might have since I am not a “professional writer” but I did have my mid/high school students write novels last year and plan on doing it again, using the guide that November Novel writing group you participated in published online.

    Look forward to hearing from you. Thanks for sharing your creativity and the power of your voice.

    Hello Hallie!
    Thanks for posting. I think you’re very wise to weigh the decision to go public with your thoughts about education if you’re also holding a job in education. Once you figure out what you want to say, that’s the time to make your blog public. I will stop by your blog. Be a little patient with me as during the next few weeks, with Christmas and family in town, and a school visit I am getting ready for in the first week of January, I will be extremely busy.

    Happy Christmas to you too, harkhendzel! (my dad says “Happy Christmas” so you put a smile on my face.) Thanks so much for stopping by my blog.

    A dinosaur all hopped up on peppermint bark would be very bad indeed. Fortunately, my office is at home, so he can be closely monitored. But thanks for looking out for us!
