Dear Friends of RN Bookmark,

After a long tenure as the primary blogger at RN Bookmark, it’s time for me to pass the torch to my wonderful colleagues. Look for more great content from TJ Ihnot, Cory Stai, Maggie Matz, and perhaps a few surprise guest bloggers going forward. They will keep RN Bookmark chugging steadily along, providing you with all the information you need to make your Read Naturally program the best it can be. 

In case you missed them, check out some recent highlights: TJ’s helpful post about Word Warm-ups Live resources; Cory’s informative post on the birth of dyslexia; and Maggie’s celebratory posts about our Star Students. The blog is in great hands!

On a personal note, I will really miss writing in this space each week. I started contributing to RN Bookmark eight years ago and always looked forward to communicating with you. I didn’t know too many of you personally, but over the years, it came to feel like I was writing to old friends. It warms my heart to know there are so many people out there committed to helping struggling readers. It also gives me great hope for the future—and hope has never felt more important.

To all the teachers and administrators out there: thank you for your ongoing dedication to your students and to Read Naturally. And to everyone at Read Naturally: thank you for creating programs and resources that are making this world a better place, one student at a time. I’m excited to follow closely along as an enduring and unwavering supporter of this fantastic company.

Warmly and with deep admiration,
