Unlock the Teacher LLC WordPress Blog 2012 in Review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 11,000 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 18 years to get that many views.

Unlock the Teacher has Regained Control Over our unlocktheteacher.wordpress Blog

Wow, what a long week of trying to figure out why someone would manipulate our system, to take over our blog.  However, once we figured out the who…all it took was effort.

We want to thank Google Security and the WordPress team for working so diligently on our behalf and in such a professional manner.

We realize that our logo has been modified as well as many lost articles.  We will get our blog back into shape and appreciate your patience.

Give us a few days to repair and we have some exciting articles to share with you on utilizing Google in education and some great educational conferences coming!

For all of the well wishes this past week, knowing that someone had hacked our blog, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Our goal is to be a beacon of light and to help make a difference for children, parents and teachers.

Have a super weekend…we will be getting our tools ready to repair our blog 🙂

May we seek knowledge in all things,

Denise and the entire Unlock the Teacher LLC Team

We Have Found an Amazing 7 Year-Old Writer and Her Mom Writes Too…Check out Her Blog

In one of our Writing Workshops in May, I was thrilled to spend time with Amy Foret.  She is a young mom who is a wife and a mother of two. Her articulate and well-read daughter is 7 and she has an amazing son who is 5.

Her daughter started reading when she was only 3 1/2, and has been writing stories since she started kindergarten. Now she is in second grade. She reads about a book a night, and writes at least one short story a week.

Please check out and welcome these new writers to WordPress and the writing arena.

For all of our readers who love to get great ideas on books to utilize in classroom or read to your child, we highly recommend Amy’s blog MY Garden Patch of Books.

Please check it our and share your thoughts here on your great reading finds 🙂

I am on my way to VA to meet with Trisha and conduct some Unlock the Teacher LLC “How to ePublish” Workshops…

Stay tuned as the next Katie’s Adventure eBook is almost ready to hit Barnes and Noble.com.  The OLQM first graders who wrote and illustrated the book did an amazing job!

May we seek knowledge in all things,
