My colleague, Rachael Walker, asked if I’d write as a Guest Blogger for the Reading Rockets blog. What is Reading Rockets? As I looked at their website, I learned:
Reading Rockets is a national multimedia project that offers a wealth of research-based reading strategies, lessons, and activities designed to help young children learn how to read and read better. Our reading resources assist parents, teachers, and other educators in helping struggling readers build fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension skills.

I had just tried “spying on myself as a reader” and shared my process with my students, so that is what I blogged about.
Then I sent it to Rachael who allowed me to see what an editor really does! She took my writing and added my photo, clarified a few parts in the middle and added a closing structure. It looked and sounded so much better.
Then she asked if I could include links to the resources I used so I did and that got added, too.
Now, today, October 31st, Halloween, it is on their website!!
I am published!! (Thanks to Rachel!!)
