Thoughts, links & ideas from the 2008 National Teacher of the Year

Each time I've taken off in a plane since May (which is a lot), I've been writing in my journal, then adding these journal entries on this blog.

Check in often, or subscribe to get headlines fed to you! Oh, and the views expressed here are not those of anyone but me.  And anyone who happens to share the same views, I guess.

(Note: the blue posted dates are actually the dates I wrote the journal entries, not when I posted them online.)

My Kind of Date

Redmond, OR


Jen is sitting next to me, on a plane!  This weekend is one of the perks of being teacher of the year (the other, of course, is being able to expense Odwalla juice at the airports.)  We’re heading to the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah!  Together!


I’m not sure we’ll actually get to see many films, but we’re going skiing today (Jen found free day-passes online), going to a couple of release parties with celebrities that we should probably learn to recognize (we don’t get out much), and attending a luncheon to honor teachers who inspired the stars (I’m not one of them… yet!  I have no doubt that my students won’t let me down!)


It’ll be a nice three-day date for us, sponsored by ING.  I need to find a corporate sponsor for our local dating life, too!  We might have a better chance of actually recognizing a celebrity if we got out and saw a movie once in a while!
