I would also be willing to reply to other posts once a month. I'm not currently in the classroom, otherwise I would be willing to do some of the other tasks.

Thanks Di, for already contributing so many good ideas and responses in this community. Even if not in the classroom, I imagine that you are curious to know from other pros out there about their take on different reading and writing topics, so feel free to jump in any time, and thanks for always supporting our discussions!

Di, according to this poll, we have three members  (you, Anne, and Pam) willing to participate on a regular basis! As I just replied to the others, that's a wonderful way to start November! I know that others will follow your leadership and we'll begin to build a more active community!

I have your personal email and will be contacting your directly if that's OK. Thanks! Leecy

I am hoping to complete a whirlwind of professional development activities over the next several months, and stretched as I am between several part-time teaching positions, I can't contribute as often as I would like.  However, I never miss the summary e-mails updating me of goings-on, and I'm often reading message boards and ideas late at night.  As I work to trim my schedule, I hope to be able to vote for my being more participatory in many of these areas, at least once a month.  Thank you for asking, Leecy!

Hello,

I am willing to contribute to discussions or reply to issues as needed. I am a correctional educator who works in our literacy unit with incarcerated men. My reading levels range from non-readers to GE 11.9. It's quite a range of skills, and never a dull moment, for sure!
