Finally back!

I am finally back home and settled after the conference.  I thought I would have time for posting but I was exhausted! Frankly, I still am exhausted!  I thought I was tired after a day with the kiddos- but this was a new/different type of tired.  I heard some amazing presenters including the delightful Rafe Esquith.  If you haven't read Teach Like Your Hair's On Fire (I haven't yet either) I would recommend it based on his inspirational presentation!  Wow is he dedicated!

I still have to prepare my lesson plans for next week so I am off-

Never compare one student's test score to another's. Always measure a child's progress against her past performance. There will always be a better reader, mathematician, or baseball player. Our goal is to help each student become as special as she can be as an individual--not to be more special than the kid sitting next to her.”-Rafe Esquith Teach Like Your Hair's On Fire


  1. I read that book during student teaching and it was amazing and so inspirational! It would be amazing to meet him.
