I care about reading, teaching, and technology (among other things), and this blog is where I tell some stories and share what I’m thinking.
What’s neat is that Iserotope is becoming a community of loyal readers where highly skilled teachers share their thoughts. I love comments, so please leave them!
Also check out Iserotope Extras, my new favorite feature. That’s where I share articles I’ve been reading. I think you’ll like them.
After spending 15 years in the classroom, I have a new assignment. As an instructional coach, I’m helping teachers put reading at the front of their practice.
I’m trying to make reading more like writing — to treat it as a craft, to make it more public and less secret, to push teachers and students to get their reading out into the world. I’m excited to see what I find out.
(Update: Don’t worry. I’ll be back in the classroom soon enough.)

Kindle Classroom Project
I’m also building the Kindle Classroom Project (with the help of generous supporters!), where ninth graders read books they like on Kindles they bring home. You might get so excited that you’ll want to contribute!
