Seems like there's a good game on this afternoon. Redo of our bet? Loser buys the wine?

Teachers - I didn't know republished the special ed of Voices fr the Middle I edited several weeks after 9/11. I asked children's and trade authors across the nation to write to you - our nation's teachers. It's a beautiful tribute to you. Please click the link and read.

A Friday afternoon and over 200 teachers in Hillsborough, FL, showed up for a three-hour workshop after school to learn how to help kids become empowered readers. and I enjoyed them so much we can't wait to go back!

Love this. Maybe you could drop me a message and let me know what your student thinks of this? I'd love that, .

The first time I saw that Brent did this, I was awed. Now, add some butcher paper under that for students to write their own lines about the value of reading - or quote someone else. And when do I get invited to visit your classroom to sign that quote myself? 😀😀

We had a great time last week working with these teachers before they headed back into the classroom. Looking forward to returning!

What time is the chat? Is it open to others or just folks? Can we come play?

I appreciate your comment that your knowledge of my writing is limited to a few pages in an anthology & frm yrs ago. You might read Disrupting Thinking or Notice & Note and thx for doing what many don't: respectfully mentioning what you might need to know more about.

Thank you to for making each retreat better than the one before. If you couldn't get in to this year's, go ahead and start planning for next year's when, once again, the stars will shine as they share their knowledge with us all.

and I will always be grateful to for taking a chance on this book. But even more, we will always embrace those of you who read it, find passages such as this one - one of my favorites - and then take it to heart. BHH reading - Book Head Heart - is so it.

I think idea of funding for mental illness is great. I support that completely. Don't know if most recent killer = diagnosed w/ mental illness. But if so, then if he had not had a gun, he would have been a person with a mental illness. With semi-automatic weapon, he's a weapon.

One more shooting. One more time. Expecting 1000 more excuses explaining why we can't discuss common sense gun laws in tis country.
