Good morning from Coralville, Iowa. I’m here after spending three days working at schools in Indiana and Iowa. Next week I’ll be in Storm Lake, Iowa and Kettering, Ohio. Earlier this week, while I was stuck in the thirteen-miles-long line of traffic pictured to the left, I thought how fortunate I am to be able to visit and learn from so many teachers all over the country. Those opportunities have come from all of you who have followed my blog, shared my blog posts, and invited me into your schools. Thank you, I couldn’t do it without you.
Here are this week’s most popular posts:
