Angela Stockman, who I am proud to call both friend and colleague, has been a wonderful resource for literacy leaders in the Western New York region for quite some time and has recently agreed to help the teachers that I work with by facilitating a regional meeting of literacy coaches and leaders. We are calling it WNYLIT. (Read about our first formal meeting here.)
As a result of that work, she has created the WNYLIT Ning which I encourage you to join and participate.
I stress the "and participate" part because forums, whether online or face-to-face, are only as good as what everyone is able to contribute. In an effort to share our experiences, avoid having to re-invent the wheel when resources (both financial and personal) are scarce and to break down the proverbial classroom walls - we hope to have great discussions going on here!! Including a book to read "together" this summer!!
Jump in and join us!
