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.)

On the Road Again

Portland, OR


On the road again… I really could have waited to get back on the road again…


I’m pretty sure I prefer life on a remote beach to this complicated life we’ve created for ourselves.


I was pretty down this morning.  Getting up at 4:30 in the darkness and freezing rain, leaving my family that I’ve spent the last three weeks with, and returning to the rubber chicken circuit just didn’t do it for me.


But things are looking up already: I get to sit next to Miley and Kai for the next 4 ½ hours!  They’re both well under three feet tall, friendly, and asking good questions.  That makes me happy.  I may be on the road again, but the skies are looking pretty friendly.
