Staying Out of the Trap

Long time no blog! At the start of this school year I had hopes of blogging every week, if not every other week. Then it became every month. Now it’s just become….well, barely at all! Today though, I had a burning desire to share a few thoughts that have been brewing over the last few […]

Make Your Mark

Last week (well actually more like the end of the week before…) my students and I celebrated International Dot Day by watching/listening to the story, “The Dot”, by Peter H.
