For many of you, this is the last week of school. My son finishes on Friday, so our summer begins then. As he begins a break, I begin to travel more. In June, I'll be in Ohio, Texas (twice), Chicago, Mississippi, and North Carolina. I love summer, because I'm able to work with so many teachers and leaders. My newest book, Rigor for Students with Special Needs is out, and I'm working away on a Rigor Toolkit for Teachers. Unfortunately, with my travel and writing schedule, I won't be blogging regularly until the end of August.
I will periodically update you as I can, but I'll be taking a bit of a break from regular blogging. For those of you on traditional schedules, I hope you are able to take some time to relax and recharge before the new year starts (although I'm aware many of you have second jobs like I did when I was a teacher). For those of you who teach summer school or at year-round schools, continue to make a difference with students--I know you will. Barbara
