anniversary_1

The time flies! I started this blog exactly a year ago, because I was so inspired by the book I was reading at the time. It was called Straight Talk About Reading and argued patiently in favor of phonics as the path to literacy. It was a beginning of my journey into learning how to be a good teacher to my child. Unlike many other moms that I met in blogosphere I have no experience in teaching. I am a software engineer by education, and my career led me on project and product management roads. I didn’t know then that I would discover a program that would work out so well for my daughter and that in just one year I would have a real reader. It was amazing journey, and I shared a lot of it in my posts.

I am also very delighted to meet so many wonderful and talented fellow bloggers on my blogging journey. I learned so much from you, and even though I often fail to write the awards posts, I am really touched with all the awards that were given to my blog this year. I admit that I also love your thoughtful comments and all the encouragement you give me, and I love to see more followers and more readers in my side bar.

I am looking forward to the second year of blogging and sharing more of our discoveries with all of you :)
