Brief reflections on NPE conference

The last two days so far exceeded my expectations it is difficult to organize my thoughts properly. I was fortunate enough to meet so many amazing people do yeoman’s work on behalf of our public school system. I am anxious to do what I can in San Antonio (and beyond) to spread our message to the public and to fight the Corporate Reform rhetoric that is so pervasive in this discussion.

Many thanks to Lee Barrios (http://www.geauxteacher.net/) and Russ Walsh (http://russonreading.blogspot.com/) for taking the time to give me suggestions and thoughts on this project. Soon I hope to be a part of a much large blogging network devoted to saving our public school system.

Above all, after this weekend I know that even though I might be the only outspoken one in my school (or even in my district), I am NOT alone in this effort. And that is why I will carry on and do what little I can.

Suggestions will always be welcome.
