Dedicated to Wonder
When thinking of what I wanted to post first, it was a pretty easy decision.
This has been an incredible summer for me. In June I entered the world of Twitter and my professional life has forever been changed.
It has been WONDERFUL connecting with so many other teachers and educators.
This last school year I introduced the book Wonder by R.J. Palacio. It was one of our "Breakfast with Books" book club selections. I will blog about "Breakfast with Books" in the future. The book became one of our favorite books.
As I got to know the Twitter world, it became apparent that many people were in awe of the book. As they like to call it "TheWonderofWonder."
Last night I participated in a Twitter book club about Wonder. It was another WONDERFUL moment for me.
I had been tossing the idea around of starting a blog after looking at, reading, and poking around so many blogs from educators around the country.
When the Twitter book club wrapped up, I knew it was time to jump into the world of blogging.
I know it will become a WONDER in my life and my career.
So in honor of my new blog, I dedicate it to the book Wonder and to all the wonderful teachers on Twitter and all the others I haven't met yet, but I know are out there...
Auggie from Wonder and all of you are truly an inspiration to me!
