Here’s just a few professional things I am up to this summer:
- Speaking on a panel about Equity in Education at ISTE
- Keynoting at the summer teachers conference for the Tecnológico de Monterrey, in Mexico City
- Consulting on curriculum redesign for teachers in Henry County, Georgia
- Running a workshop at the SREB High Schools that Work Staff Development Conference in Atlanta – PDF of Slideshow Here
On a more personal note, I am also interested in sitting on beaches, swimming in the ocean (and, in a new one for me, pools), eating watermelon, and playing skee ball on the boardwalk. Gotten to all but that last one so far.

You do NOT have to have read the book in advance (that’s the point), nor do you have to attend every meeting of your book club. I will be out of town for several meetings of The New Jim Crow, but that didn’t stop me from signing up and thinking yes, yes, yes when I read the first page today:
