I launched my first course from the Discover. Play. Build. PD School. Less than 12 hours later and 68 people have enrolled!  I can’t wait to hear your stories. Will you share them with me? Leave a comment and let me know how conferring with student writers impacts YOU. There are a ton of ways it impacts children, but I’d love to hear the ways it impacts you.
I’ll go first.
Conferring changes me because I hear children’s stories. I realize there is so much more to a child than learning the academics. When they share their stories or interests, I remember the reasons I wanted to be a teacher. I wanted to make the world better one child at a time. It starts with knowing their stories. From there, I help them tell their stories better. I teach them to use their voices to change the world. And in some small way, it makes me know stories matter. Every story matters.
Thanks for celebrating with me. I can’t wait to hear your celebrations about how conferring impacts you.

  1. Ruth, its exciting to watch your course develop, especially so for me as I've expanded my PD work the past couple of years to include the internet as a venue. You will be such a blessing to so many teachers through this venture. I am cheering for you!

  2. I have always believed that “everyone needs a Ruth” and now everyone can have one! Sounds like a blog post in the works. Congratulations on your success, though I am not a bit surprised. I can't wait to see what is next.
