Nerds of a Feather

One week to go before school begins! Today I spent a wonderful afternoon discussing Reading Workshop with colleagues. Some of us are trying it for the first time. Others shared their experiences and resources. This was not official professional development but every bit as valuable — maybe more so, since it came from a common interest and a genuine desire to improve our teaching in ways that feel right to us. Choice and authenticity… sound familiar, Reading Workshop teachers?

Being nerds, the conversation often turned to other important matters, including The Dresden Files, Doctor Who, Outlander, Homestuck, manga, anime, writing, cosplay, RPGs, and Nerdfighteria. I am so fortunate to have found kindred spirits whose enthusiasm for life and for teaching reaffirm that I am in the right place. DFTBA!

  1. It’s nice to work with people who enjoy the job and like the nerdy/weird things you like. I work with some theatre dorks, book nerds, and magic lovers (Not even ashamed to love magic). I’ve also made connections over Doctor Who.
