published!

Last August I blogged about a little boy I taught years ago, and my journey with him in our year together as we worked together on his behavior. Responsive Classroom contacted me about turning the post into an article for their newsletter. Needless to say, I was thrilled and honored since I usually read every word in RC's newsletter, devouring it for all the great ideas it usually holds.

We spent the last year tweaking, re-writing, and then re-writing it again. I absolutely loved working with an editor and seeing all the different ways the original piece of writing could be driven in so many different directions before finally settling on one piece.

The print addition is due out in August, but the on-line version is now available!
