Just blogged about how much I agree with this fantastic letter to a pre-service teacher.
Is it worth going into teaching in the current climate? Eleven-year veteran Dina Strasser offers a "letter to a young teacher" who's wondering if she's in over her head.

Loving playing around with Mac OS X Lion. The new scroll behavior takes some getting used to, but it makes sense.

Very impressed. It'll be better as more apps support some of the features (versioning and full screen, for example). Still wishing a few of my apps would decide to run under Lion. Patience is a virtue, I guess.

Is Brady worried? Maybe a little
Those who have attended New England Patriots' training camp practices over the past eight days might have been struck by the rustiness of the offense. There have been a lot of dropped footballs. Timing between quarterbacks and pass-catchers has been inconsistent. The blocking up front has been ...

My people come from the North End of Boston. Just on the legal side of the mob.

I hope that you have had some nice weather at the Cape!

It's pretty cool (pardon the pun). It's the size of a thin pillow, and you add water inside. There's no electricity or refrigeration, it just stays a little cooler than room temp. Here's a link: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0000V0E14. It worked surprisingly well.

Thanks, Akhil! I spent a week this summer in the mountains with Dr. Colbert. Check out this photo: https://img.skitch.com/20110717-8uus2hfehfesa589ngdmexenwy.jpg

Husband, father, teacher, blogger, jokester
Introduction
I am a short, smart, funny, Italian-American man in his thirties who finds joy in the spontaneous order of Nature and the hugs of his children.

I used to spend my days (and some nights) teaching middle schoolers how to think like scientists and enjoy understanding the mysteries of the natural world.  But, these days I lead a team of awesome North Carolina teachers who spread the message about the importance of data literacy.

Went hot-air ballooning and whitewater rafting in the same month.
