|Max says, “fire this up!”|
Good evening from Woodstock, Maine where it is a perfect evening for barbecuing. Before I fire up the grill, I have this week’s week in review post for you. This week I had the privilege of speaking to teachers from Sonoma, California and Oldham, Kentucky. Next week I’ll be speaking at Boston College and working with teachers in Delta, Colorado.
