Wait, what?! Say more about the marriage thing. Is it because of traveling??? I’ve never heard about that.

Consultants that I have met that are divorced, married non-consultants. The consultants I have met that are happily married, are married to other consultants.

Big miss on the marriage part.

I'm curious what others are using to teach spelling with learning support/resource room students. I have several students with writing disabilities who really struggle with spelling and I'm wondering if there's a great curriculum or workbook out there. Any suggestions? Any great TeachersPayTeachers resources? Thanks!
