I apologize for being a little out of the blog world recently, but I'm back to honor another fantastic teacher, who is making a difference in, and out of her classroom!

Favorite Teaching Moment:
In Michaela's own words-
"There are so many little things that happen each and every day that remind my why I love my job! I implemented reader's workshop in my classroom this year, something the kids in my classroom were not used to. When I would announce it was time to start reading workshop, there were audible groans from many of my students. One day, a few months into the school year, we were at reader's workshop and I lost track of time! When I looked up, it was time to pack up for dismissal and I announced that we had to stop reading. One of my little guys, who is a very reluctant reader, looked up from his book and said ʺBut Mrs. Almeida, I don't want to stop reading!ʺ That one sentence made me so happy! It was definitely one of the highlights of my career so far!"
