Rigor is creating an environment in which each student is expected to learn at high levels,
each student is supported so he or she can learn at high levels,
and each student demonstrates learning at high levels (Blackburn, 2008).

Giving Me Hope, Part One

I have a copy of a wonderful book called "Gives Me Hope: The 127 Most Inspiriting Bite-Sized Stories".  It is worth every penny!  This week, I'll be sharing five stories from the book.

Years ago I told my best friend Matt that I couldn't go to the senior prom with him because my parents couldn't afford to buy me a dress.  The night of the dance, Matt showed up at my door with a beautiful red dress, matching shoes and corsage, and two tickets to the prom.  Three years, a marriage, and one child later, he still gives me hope.
