Marsha, I can't wait to hear all about it!
Whatever got across I am sure it was good stuff!
You are fabulous!

Hey, girlfriend. Chin up.

It's not as bad as you think (and I know--because I was there, too, waiting in The Queue That Didn't Get to Speak). Persist, persist, persist.

Don't you tell your students "If at first you don't succeed...?" Keep writing, keep talking. Your voice is important.


Thanks friends.

I know it was totally idealistic to think we'd break through tonight. I kept hoping. I'm certainly not giving up...way too stubborn for that. if nothing else I will be radicalized in my own classroom where I have already implemented college ready assessment and higher order thinking skills. Where we dare to dream big.

Things like this just make you wonder how you'll make a difference in the world beyond the kids that you teach. And I know to take comfort in that it makes a huge difference in their lives....I guess I'm just impatient because I want it for everyone.

Marsha -
Thanks for all you've done to make this conversation happen. I don't know if you could have hoped for a breakthrough or anything dramatic, but it would be nice to feel that you had been heard - in any sense of the word. Hang in there.
