i feel like i've been gone for months. returned from baltimore this afternoon, tired and challenged by the presentations i made at the NAME (National Association for Multicultural Education) conference. incredible conference-- GREAT information being shared, and much appreciation for my organization's work, but i couldn't help but feel that the wrong people were there. my new york teacher friends working in schools with kids that are facing incredible odds weren't there, high-powered teacher educators from universities were. people that haven't seen the inside of a k-12 classroom from the teacher perspective in decades...or, sometimes, ever. A little disappointing, but I still enjoyed myself, and bought these two beautiful framed prints-
i love beautiful things.
