In November, I was fortunate to present at the 2015 New York State Reading Association Conference.

There, I was fortunate to meet Lucy Calkins, before her keynote address. I participated one-on-one in a conferring exercise with her protégé, Dr. Gravity Goldberg. I also immersed myself in the keynote address by Dr. Richard Allington. I attended several sessions given by grammar guru Marvin Turban. Having the opportunity to present at the same conferences as these figureheads in reading, writing, and literacy research was humbling, and a great honor.
