This morning one of our science teachers forwarded me (and our two full-time math teachers) Dan Meyer's TEDxNYED talk. It was cool because I was able to reply to her with this link. The opportunities for and power of worldwide collaboration in our profession are truly remarkable.
But what was most cool was the conversation it started between the two of us. She asked if I blog. I said I do, though not nearly as often as I'd like to or should. She said she wants to start one. I mentioned that it's the best professional development I've ever done, not just writing my own but reading others. And just like that we both got better. And just like that, I finally wrote another blog post.
