I've got a small goal that I've been pursuing for about a year now. That is to listen to my students more. As I've been more intentional about listening, I've noticed that it happens in places and times that I've found unexpected. A few observations: I noti...

Ruts and Other Stuff
It's funny what will get you on a roll again. I think it's pretty natural for any of us to get into ruts. It happens in relationships. It happens to athletes. It happens emotionally. So it is only reasonable to expect it to happen professionally. Todd Whita...

I Pray For Aliens
There's a joke that the first time that there will be peace on Earth
is when the planet is attacked by an alien race. That's what it will take to unite the world together as one human race. I giggled the first

Here are some of the ways it supports the learning process.
