I'm linking up today and answering a few questions about myself. (Warning: It's nothing too exciting.)
1. What made you decide to be a teacher?I'm not sure I can remember a day when I officially made the choice to teach. I think it was always part of my plan and in my blood. I was one of those little people who said I was going to be a teacher when I grew up and meant it. I loved my elementary teachers though, so I know they played a huge role.
2. What has been the most rewarding experience as a teacher?I can't really narrow it down to one experience, but welcoming non-writers and non-readers into the literacy club is part of what guarantees that I'll be forever in first. It's a challenge but a rewarding one.
3. If you were not a teacher, what would you be?There was a time when swimming with the whales sounded like fun, but I got over that about 35 years ago. I guess if I weren't a teacher, I'd probably be working with teachers. Truthfully, I wouldn't mind becoming Regie Routman when I grow up.
