Welcome to first time guest Nicole Mancini.  Nicole is a Reading Specialist that is currently teaching 5th grade ELA at Bedminster Township Public School in Bedminster NJ.  Nicole also is a freelance writer, literacy advocate, Flipgrid Ambassador, and a Skype education teacher.  Five minutes into today‚Äôs show and you will see that the word passionate is an understatement and that Nicole doing more than can ever be listed in an opening paragraph.

Nicole tells us her story and how she became a Disney fan and how she found her way into education.  We then learn about how she structures her ELA classroom and how she uses the reader workshop approach.  Learn how she instills a passion for reading in her students and how she gets them begging for more and more homework using a relatively new software app called Flipgrid. 

Learn how she is using Skype in the classroom and several other resources you can use to bring relevance and real-world applications to your classroom. 

Discover how she brings the Disney magic to her classroom and gives us several ideas about how she brings Disney into the classroom as well as brainstorming other new ways to incorporate the magic that she just thinks of on the spot through our conversation!
