I'm so happy that Ruth Ayres started a Celebrate Link-Up on her blog!!! I will be joining the celebration every Saturday!!
Lots to celebrate from the Choice Literacy Writing Retreat! Brenda Power, the founder of the fabulous teaching professional development website, is so gracious and generous and provides time and inspiration to write for her contributors each summer. Last year was my first year to attend with Megan, but we could only stay one day. We were so excited to stay the whole three days this year!
The theme was RENEWAL, and I definitely felt renewed after gathering with some of the smartest, most dedicated, inspiring, funny, and kind people/teachers/writers I know. They made us feel completely welcome. I loved the conferring, discussions, reading, and writing. Brenda makes us think with the books she gives us. Thank you, Brenda, for your gift to us, and thank you, fellow CL writers - you're an inspiration to me!
