Start Spreadin’ the News…

Posted on

Okay, so I’m not leaving today, but soon enough! Next week, I’ll be at Columbia University for the Summer Writing Institute hosted by the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project. I’m so excited – this will be my sixth TC institute, and I have no doubt I will leave just as inspired as I have every time before.

Every single minute of the day will be packed with opportunities to refine my craft, and the evenings will be spent exploring the big city that has been calling my name since my very first visit.

I can’t put my finger on one specific reason my small-town heart longs to live in New York City….the brilliant minds, the bright lights, the Broadway shows – could be any of those. I do know, however, that next week will be an opportunity to grow in so many ways, and I can’t wait!

  1. Julie good luck and have a great time. I can’t wait for you to let us know all that you’ve learned. Wish it was me:D

  2. Have fun at TC next week! I’m going to the writing institute in August and can’t wait! I also attend many of the institutes like you and I love the high level of energy and learning!
    Enjoy šŸ™‚

  3. I would love to go to that class! I’m, hopefully, about to teach high school English and need some pointers on writing. I have the reading thing down, as I have a master’s in reading.

  4. I hope you had as great as an experience as I did at Teacher College!! I am glad I had been using her Writer’s Workshop format for a year before I went. I found it easier to relate to the classes and breakout sessions.
    I absolutely love your website and have already shared it with my fellow teachers!!

    Have a great school year!
