Are you attending the Art of Education's Summer Conference?
I'm so (SO!) excited to announce that I will be presenting at it! Jessica (the owner of AOE) has put together an incredible conference designed to inspire, provoke, and get you excited about your next school-year. I hope you will attend; I'm really looking forward to Teresa Gillespie, Ian Sands, and Cassie Stephens' presentations.
I hope to see you there!
And, if you are interested, here is a bit of information about my session (oh, let the controversy begin!).

This session covers 10 common misconceptions about “bad” schools, and what we, the teachers, can do to overcome them.
