Disengaging From the 'Teacher Wars'

Weary of her participation in the "teacher wars," Cindi Rigsbee resolves to de-stress in 2011. She explains:

The energy I expended being mad at Michelle Rhee this past year, for example, was energy I could've used to push my grandchildren on the swingset. The blood pressure numbers I earned after watching the trailer for "Waiting for Superman" could've looked much different if I had offset them with exercise and healthy eating.

A key component of her new approach: She's taking a class in Broadway Dance.
