Happy 2023, Followers! I’ll admit, it was a tough year at Teaching With Magic. I had a lot of changes happen over the course of the year, but many of those changes were wonderful. My son, my Little Smauglet, came into the world, and I’ve spent the last year trying to keep up as he changed right before my eyes. I had to shelve a lot of projects as I chose to be a working stay-at-home mom, but it was absolutely worth it. Smauglet will be going to school part-time in April, which means I will have a little more room for projects, content, and research. I took some time to reflect on what I wanted Teaching With Magic to be, and to look like, over the course of 2023 and I am quite happy with the results. Here are some of the BIG goals that I have for the next year:
🪄I’m launching a podcast! The Teaching With Magic Podcast will be an audio version of my blog posts on Teaching With Magic, with some additional content sprinkled in between. I’m working on enlisting some friends and educators for interview episodes. Fingers crossed! The podcast will officially launch in May, which will give me time to record some episodes and get my little dragon settled into school.
🪄I want to share current research and data in reading, literacy, and teaching with you! It all connects, I promise.
🪄Read, read, read!
Man, I tell you, postpartum does crazy things to the brain. Reading became a lot harder for me after my son was born, but now I’m working on carving out specific times and goals for reading.
🪄I want to know more about what would help YOU! Are you a teacher? Parent? Lifelong scholar? What can I do to help you engage with my content? What do you want to see on my page? In my blog? Let me know in the comments!
