Hi! I recently filled out that (long!) application to be a Teacher Advisor for the 2012-13 year. Do you know when we find out any information? I can't find out anything on the site regarding if/when they will contact us if we are selected or have not been chosen. Thank you!!

Samantha,

It's an awesome feeling recognizing some of my readers. Glad to see that YOU are back as well. I have some good writing mojo in me with the new job, so it should help me balance the whole mommy/teacher game. Oh, and let's not forget my favorite balancing act of all- high mileage running (hello 6-10 miles before sunset).

Smiles,

Angela

Yippee, you're back!!! Thank you so much for continuing this. I know how busy the life of a teaching mommy can be!

Hey Jenny,

That's great to hear. Glad you found my (not so updated) site. I reeeaaallllyyyy need to get on it and add some new content. It's only been several months. Glad it was helpful to you.

Meanwhile, I have a post for you that will answer your question on building community. In short- no trinkets/anti-extrinsic reward person here...although this post was on classroom management, it will address my general philosophy on building community as well.

Title: Management Based on Trust http://blogs.scholastic.com/3_5/2008/11/management-base.html#more

And on directly on building community: Building Community in Your Backyard http://blogs.scholastic.com/3_5/2008/09/community-build.html#more

Hope that helps!

Much respect,

Angela

Angela,

I have just discovered your website/blog, and I love it! I think we have a lot of the same beliefs and practices regarding teaching and learning. I was wondering if you had any tips regarding the beginning of the school year, particularly in the area of building community?

Thanks for all that you do for teachers and kids.

Fran, Thanks for sharing the blog and reading it too...I am excited to be back and think the new position will give me a lot to write about. Meanwhile, I will make sure I check out your blog in few minutes (on my way home from church).

Angela

I am so glad to see you are back! I think I drive everybody crazy telling them to check out your blog, but you've been a HUGE inspiration to me and helped me think about trying out some new things in my classroom. Enjoy your new position! Fran http://sophieandsadiesscholarlysite.blogspot.com/

Ritz,

What's really odd is that when our literacy coach (turned academic interventionist mid-year) was transferred to another school, it didn't even enter my mind to apply for the position. I'm glad others thought of it for me, and I am really feeling like I can put my strengths to use in the position. Very happy...and happy to share some new "stuff" this year.

Angela

Stacy,

"The site"...goodness, I have really, really neglected the site. The truth is use Dreamweaver and it won't let me publish changes at the moment. I need to call for support.

But, in short, yes, I still have the website and it is up and running.

Angela

Your new position sounds the perfect job for you! Your blog posts and reading recommendations in the past have been fantastic... I look forward to following you again this year! Thanks for all the great ideas!

I am so excited you are back for another year! I have used so many of your ideas over the years and look forward to what you share with us this year. Do you still have a website?

Diane,

It continues to amaze me that I have any readers that have kept up with me for any amount of time. With the busy schedules we all have, I consider it a great honor. Thank you and I hope I can make good use of your time with my blog posts this year. :)

Angela

Justine,

Thanks! This will be a learning year for me. I have had a crash course already and feel really energized about literacy instruction. I can't wait to share it here as well.

Best to you,

Angela

Welcome Back and Congratulations on your new position!! I have followed your posts for a couple of years and have been able to gain such valuable advice and perspective on the teaching profession. I am looking forward to your posts continuing to evolve and inspire others, including myself. Have a great year!

Angela, Congratulations on your new position! I always learned a great deal from your posts last year, and I look forward to learning more from your experience this year as you begin a new phase of your teaching career.

Good luck in your first few weeks of school!

Sincerely, Justine
