I Am Honored

I really don't want to brag, but I think that my blogging buddies would be so proud of me when I tell you the news.


I have been selected with 23 other teachers from the state to write a new formative assessment in ELA Reading.  I get to travel in a few weeks and then again in May to meet up with the team.  We are going to be extensively trained in the Common Core (which translates:  bloggers will learn all that I learn!) in order to write the assessment.


The acceptance letter is so formal, it scared the heck out of me.  I was afraid to accept, but the pay is awesome and just the fact that I will gain so much new information was the icing on the cake.


So if you have any questions that you want answered about the Common Core, just let me know.  I will compile a list and see if I can get them answered.


Have a beautiful week faithful friends!
