Big Time Blogging Challenge 15

So, I guess this is going to be the summer of online challenges. ;)
The newest challenge is from Michelle of BigTime Literacy.

Hey! I'm Adrienne.  I am a Literacy Interventionist (aka reading interventionist, but "literacy" makes it sound fancy and it really encompasses more of what I do) for grades K-5.  This position started last October.  Before that, I taught first grade for 10 years.  I LOVE first graders!

Recently, I started running/jogging because of inspiration from my teacher-friends.  In May I ran my first 5K (including running up stadium ramps, yikes!) and have 2 more planned over the next 3 month.  I still don't consider myself a runner, but it's nice to run for choice and not because a coach is punishing the team or because Zombies are chasing me.

My goal for this challenge is to get into a consistent pattern of blogging.  I like recording my teacher-life for future reference and personal encouragement.  Also, connecting with other teachers and bloggers is really interesting.  It gives me a fresh perspective and kicks me out of slumps and ruts.
Now on to a not-too-fun activity...mucking the chicken coop.  Yuck!

  1. Hey there! sorry for the late response on your blog, but thanks for writing in the challenge! I'm on vacation now, but going to be back to routine very soon - hope to catch you back soon! Would love to hear more about what you do in your position and compare notes (i'm a literacy coach too!) :-)
