Ep 164 - Work Smarter, Not Harder - How Remote Teachers Can Set Limits
I hope you’re having an awesome week so far. I wanted to talk to you today about setting realistic goals and aligning priorities.

I want to talk to you about 6 different areas of our lives.
So what is most important to you? I want you to rank these 6 things in order of importance.
Ep 163 - Just Teach! - 7 Tips to Help You Survive Remote Teaching
I hope you have all had an okay start back into the second half of the school year. Now, I know this is not what we signed up for. In fact, it is VERY different than what we signed up for. So I wanted to share some tips today to help you break through the overwhelm and stress that comes with being a “digital” teacher.
First, take away all the noise and chaos and get down to the very basics...Just TEACH!

EP 161- Student Teacher Writing Conferences: Why They Help & What To Cover!
I’m popping in today to talk all about student teacher writing conferences!
Whether you already have these one on one sessions with your students or not, I wanted to share the structure I use in my Ignited Literacy Program and how these conferences help students gain confidence in their writing skills. 📝
What’s great about these assessments is that it gives an opportunity to provide feedback and really help students work on their goals and set them up for success ✨(the goals are on my Be A Star Goal Board posted in my classroom!).
Remember - small incremental improvements over time lead to big success. 🤩
EP 159 - Literature Circles vs. Literature Centers - Which is Right for You?
It seems to me that there are two distinct types of teachers. Those that use Literature Circles and those that use Literature Centers.
Now over my career, I’ve used both Literature Centers and Literature Circles (we’ll get to my personal favorite at the end 😉). Neither is right or wrong and BOTH have a valid place in the classroom.
If you’re still deciding which is the best for your teaching style, you’re in luck. Here come the pros and cons to both options!
