So, the course of my summer and chances to read should be evident in the number and type of posts I've made each month since June. Some of the lack of reading was intentional because, as I'd posted before, there were a lot of things going on with those around me and I wanted to be a part of it. On the other hand, it was a weird summer, period. Reading opportunities are not going to get better any time soon, as school starts for me next week and students come the week after. I've been reading this month, but it has been books I need to start my school year and such.
But...this gives me a chance to use this post to put a few things out there. Sometime between August and September, I will be taking my blog self-hosted! A scary move for me, but I have a most trusted friend who does this for a living and I trust her capabilities.
Also, I am hoping to continue with Student Spotlight again this year, where my students will be posting their work to my blog. I am looking forward to doing this better this year and incorporating it into my class more.
But, as one of my favorite American greats once wrote, "Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.”
