Next meeting – August 13

What is important is to keep learning, to enjoy challenge, and to tolerate ambiguity.

In the end there are no certain answers.

— Martina Horner

I hope you are enjoying summer and finding the time to relax, enjoy friends and family and catch up on pleasure reading as well as professional reading. Our next meeting is Thursday, August 13. We will finish discussing Ellin Oliver Keene’s book To Understand. I’ve found this to be a book that has really made me think, rethink, question and get excited about planning for the upcoming school year. I look forward to more conversation around this excellent book.

We will be choosing another book to read and discuss in the upcoming months. Please post any suggestions here, or bring the book to our next meeting. We’ve mentioned Linda Christensen’s new book Teaching for Joy and Justice, as well as Mary Cowhey’s book Black Ants and Buddhists. Be thinking about what book would inspire you as we begin another teaching and learning year!

Remember – 4-4:30 is time to catch up and chat, the meeting is 4:30-5:30, and then feel free to stay for dinner. I hope to see many of you there!
