Dear Fellow Learners,
Welcome to my new blog documenting my learning journey as Alabama's Teacher of the Year for 2014-15.  I'll be posting my thinking, learning, teaching, reflecting, and fun as I learn daily in my classroom, with kids and teachers of our state, and with those colleagues and children from around the country and world this year.

I hope this blog can be a place that represents the honest and hopeful voices for the future of education, and also as Ellen, one of my wise fourth graders said, a place "where conversations spark, voices rise, and mindsets grow."

part of a letter Ellen A. wrote in May at the end of our fourth grade year together

I look forward to the learning and growing with all of you.

With thankfulness and hope,
Ann Marie
