What is School? The Writing Life of Teachers

I am away this week at a speaking engagement in Hong Kong so Mark Weston will take the lead of #whatisschool this week and joining him is the amazing Amber Chandler. I will check out the archive and I look forward to your contributions on what is such an important topic in our careers.

This Thursday, join #whatisschool as we explore The Writing life of Teachers. Chat with teachers about the dreams, challenges, and realities of their writing. Learn why some love to write and others hate writing.  Read about what they’ve written and what they’d really like to write someday.
