The Week In Review – The Most Popular Posts

Good evening from Maine where I am home after another great trip to North Carolina for the NCTIES conference. Thank you to everyone who came to my workshops and presentations. A special thank you to those who supported me with nice messages about my presentations, came to multiple presentations, and or asked for selfies with me. Despite some logistical challenges that were out of my control this week, I once again thoroughly enjoyed NCTIES.

NCTIES represents the beginning of my spring and summer professional development calendar. I still have some openings in my calendar. I’d be happy to visit your school. Send me an email at richardbyrne (at) to learn how to bring me to your school.
