A Year of Reading. Stop by today's round up for more poetry.
In a week I begin a new journey as I move from my first grade classroom to a reading intervention position in our building. It's the first time I've been without a classroom to arrange, a class list to call my own, or a classroom community to begin to build. It's a little unsettling. I'm excited about this new opportunity and am beginning to rethink my community --- it's just larger. Find my class list --- it's the classes I will be working with in the upcoming year. I stumbled upon this poem this evening that seemed fitting as I find my way in this new place.

Stand still. The trees ahead and bushes beside you
Are not lost. Wherever you are is called Here,
And you must treat it as a powerful stranger,
Must ask permission to know it and be known.

Here's to a new journey as I discover my new HERE.
