Walking the Talk

I have been advocating for changes in education to improve the quality of life for teachers, students and administrators for my whole career.

Mathematics: The Language of Life?

As I thought about what I might write this month, I considered giving a shout out to some people I have been learning from lately; namely, Clay Shirky, Seth Godin, Chris Anderson, and Garr Reynolds.

Sir Ken Robinson's The Element or Transforming Education

Of course, many people do do well in their schools and love what they have to offer. But too many graduate or leave early, unsure of their real talents and not knowing what direction to take next.
