Hello world!

I am creating yet another blog to chronicle my journey through the Greater New Orleans Writing Project Summer Institute.  I want to publish my work, not because I think that it is GREAT but because ….. that is what I do.

I am now a Writer

I have decided to fully embrace the writing challenge that has been presented to me. I am creating yet another blog to chronicle my journey through the Greater New Orleans Writing Project Summer Institute and my other summer writing activities.

My assignments will be based on

GNOWP topics

Teachers Write Topics

Morning Monday Warm-Ups

I want to publish my work, not because I think that it is GREAT but because ….. that is what I do.

Introducing the GNOWP 2012 Summer Institute class

My new PLN

I have the pleasure of being a part of the GNOWP this summer and I have just met the members of my new Summer Learning Group.  We are an eclectic group of professional educators who will be sharing this summer learning more about each other and ourselves.

This morning I have met people who describe themselves various ways:

  • Shy
  • Witty
  • Hidden online
  • Guarded
  • Rule follower
  • Inspiring
  • Lover of birds
  • Liking netflix
  • Talkative
  • Hungry
  • Scattered
  • Pre-aunt
  • Father
  • Smartass
  • ADHD I threw in the H she just said ADD
  • Husband
  • Teacher

 

This summer our goal is to be creative and supportive as we explore our writing assignments and create publications.  Chris said that “Teaching is a ministry” and if that is the case we are all the followers.  This summer I see us taking a pilgrimage to the promise land (I felt compelled to continue with the religious reference) and discovering more about ourselves than we knew when we set foot in this room.

Teaching is a ministry and this summer I look forward to spending time learning writing techniques with this diverse group of teachers.
