Inspiration. This is what listening and learning does for me. As I sat in the audience and listened to Lucy Calkin's addressing 2800 educators my heart began to soar!! I kept thinking to myself I hope my grant comes through so I can go to the Institute this summer. As I looked at my colleagues from my school, their eyes full of delight and rapture at the words echoing in our ears I felt at home. It is amazing how this one woman has changed the face of education.
Perfect birthday present. Looks like 33 is going to be a great year!
