My Three Favorite Things…Today


I wrote this on Friday, March 2.  It still makes me feel great when I read it!

  • Getting to know someone new
    • Today I ate lunch with a student who “won” a lunch with me in our PTO’s school carnival raffle.  Although I have seen him around the building, I didn’t really know him until today. What a treat!
  • Hosting a visitation day
    • A neighboring district asked to visit our school to learn about our literacy model and to observe our teachers in action.  We had a group of 14 teachers + 1 literacy coach + 1 principal. What fun to share what we know and to let our teachers shine.  Great learning was happening today!
  • Hearing birds chirping…
    • Leaving my house this morning, cheer-y chirps tickled my ears.  Yes, after some unusually warm weather here in Wisconsin, most of the snow piles are gone and the birds are singing!  Hallelujah!  Here is the promise of Spring-again.

About bjdonaldson

I think of myself as a Renaissance woman with a variety of passions. If you visited me, you might find me hanging out with my husband and children. Our Golden Retriever would be lovingly near. I am a Literacy Coach/Reading Specialist at an elementary school where I provide professional development and coaching to teachers. Formerly, I was a Reading Recovery teacher, an interventionist, and a middle and elementary classroom teacher. Getting up in the morning is not hard; I still love making a difference in the lives of children and teachers.

    • We got the the lunch last…and all the pizza was gone! There was some big mix-up with the order, but after the “all call” to the staff with extra, but untouched, pieces of pizza, Jack got his pizza. He was all smiles…and so was I. Thanks for commenting.


  1. The last two I can relate to. The first one sounds interesting. A student winning a lunch with a teacher is something I have never heard of before.
