March 21 - Heading to the TCRWP Reunion Saturday

Worked for four days, teaching my 27 fourth graders.
Taught a group of teachers Thursday afternoon at another school.
Returned to my school at 7pm to leave sub plans.
Mission accomplished at 9:11pm.
Made dinner and packed once at home.
Emailed my grade-level partner because I forgot to leave something for my sub.
Set alarm for 5:30am.

Catching the 7:25am train to Penn Station.
Will be sitting in Riverside Church tomorrow at 8am awaiting the Reunion to start!

I'm exhausting thinking about all I did to take one Friday off from work.
I discovered TCRWP the summer of 2009.
Then every Oct and March, I've attended their Reunion Saturday workshops.
How can I pass up a day of freee workshops taught by the smartest literacy people in our nation?
I can't!

Suddenly, I don't feel exhausted at all!
"All Aboard"!


  1. Jealous!! Sounds like you are going to have an amazing time. have a wonderful break talking all things Literacy. This slice had a sense of urgency to it. I felt the rush. What does it look like on a train to Penn Station? :)

  2. I'm skipping this year so I can't wait to hear how it goes. I'm pretty sure Anna and Tara will be there. I hope you'll get to meet in person.

    Have fun!

  3. Enjoy! I am sure it will be a wonderful experience! The times I have gone I have always walked away with much inspiration and lots of new learning.

  4. Jealous! I went last year and have been before that, but not this year. It is a wonderful experience full of so much information it makes me brain hurt! Have a wonderful day.

  5. I'll be there!!!! @tara_smith5 - get in touch with me!

  6. Can't wait for a day full of inspiration! Seems like we need a Slicer get together at the end of the day!

  7. OH, I'm going to miss you all tomorrow! Have a GREAT DAY! I will be there in spirit!
