    Thanks for all the great posts by some of the best. I gained many new ideas and reminders of what I should be doing in my classroom. This was definitely worth my time.

    This has been great for me. I am returning to the classroom this fall after a LONG break to stay home with my kids. I am excited and nervous, and I cannot tell you how valuable this has been for me. Each post dusted off different parts of my teaching mind and have been extremely helpful in getting that part of myself moving again. It’s been awesome!!! Thanks again to each author for sharing your own experiences! I can’t wait to incorporate so many of the things I have learned this summer!

    Thank you for another amazing blogstitute filled with excellent advice from educator-authors — AND some new books to add to my to-read list. Enjoyed it all, as usual. 🙂
