It's great getting feedback on this blog!!

Just time for a quick entry today, but I wanted to say thanks to those of you who've been posting comments on this blog. It's fun to know that even with the many things we all have to do, we're making time to read people's blogs. Darinka Popovic, teacher-librarian at Rockheights Middle School in Victoria, B.C., shared an interesting memory about clotheslines (she doesn't share my fondness for them, however!). I've also had feedback from students I've met in the last few weeks on school visits -- so thanks to you Victoria, Joy and Lawrence. Lawrence, who's a student at Westmount High in Montreal, is a blogger himself. I checked out his blog last night and found it pretty interesting, especially when he gets personal. If you want to see it for yourself, go to http://yellowjordan.spaces.live.com/default.aspx
Another blogger who's been staying in touch with me via this blog is fellow writer Anita Daher, who lives in Winnipeg, Manitoba. We got our first snow in Montreal this week, but from what I understand, Winnipeg's already seen plenty of winter. Anita's latest book is called Two Foot Punch and it's published by Orca Books.

Miss. Polak, you never mentionned this blog to your English class!! I only just found it now and read all of the entries in one shot. There are so many interesting stories which you never told us! I especially liked the ones about the different students you met, as it really shows that each person has their own share of difficulties, and I suppose how we deal with them is what's most important...

Hi Monique,
Hope you're staying warm. When I left Winnipeg for Book Week a little over a week ago it was still fall. When I returned on Saturday--winter! We're right in the thick of it...-26 yesterday! I think it's supposed to be a little warmer today, but, brrrr!

This is really fun to read, even the writing tips which we've already done in class. So how much time do you spend writing every day? Some journal time, writing books, newspaper articles, blogs... I am impressed you have time to teach and give talks too!

Hi Ms. Polak,
I can't help but agree with Kim and Rosa!
Some of the stuff you wrote had me laughing, other stuff reflecting.
Keep on blogging!
