As per requests on your end, I’m finally posting my blog!
Check back from time to time, I will post an average of twice a week, with most as professional posts focusing on teaching and learning, tips, favorite publications, and thoughts from you. Let’s get this dialogue going!
What am I up to lately, you’ve asked over and over? Yes, there is life after thirty years with Miami-Dade County Public Schools! My professional life includes:
- Consulting (working with schools and districts across the country)
- Providing seminars/professional development in literacy, RTI, inclusive practices, and learning disabilities (I’ll be in Sioux Falls, Denver, Boise, Portland, Phoenix, Columbus, and Chicago in the next few months)
- Writing (both professionally and a new secret project that I’m not quite ready to unveil)
- Continuing my own professional growth and development with research, seminars and classes
- And, No, I’m not teaching at the university this semester. I’m taking some time off to focus on some other projects at the moment. Although I totally miss my students, I hear from a bunch of them regularly, so that keeps me going.
Teaching Tip of the Week:
- Have you checked out CHART DOG on intervention Central yet? Go to www.interventioncentral.org and click on Chart Dog. You can input data (such as a fluency probe) and hit enter – voilà! You will have an instant graph to print up like the one I did for Jose below as documentation.
- Try it out – It will be your best friend this fall. 🙂
Also, on the subject of favorite sites:
- Check out www.cymbot.com as your next favorite search engine. You will love the accessibility of various navigational tools – it’s my new favorite thesaurus, with links to a dictionary, urban dictionary, Wikipedia, etc. Check it out. You’ll love it:
“Focusing on Your Educational Needs”
Hope to hear from you!
