Both today and tomorrow I have the pleasure of working with Michael Rettig - the block scheduling master. I thought reading his material was phenomenal, but working with him in a room is even better. As we get ready to be one of the pilots for block scheduling, we couldn't be in better hands. Want to know more about him and his work? Check out him out here.

So I realized this weekend that it has been a long time since my last entry. That is directly correlated to the business in the new job! Williamsburg Middle School has kept me very busy. We have already had 1 parent outreach off campus, a PTA meeting, Back to School Night, and right on our heels are student led conferences. Needless to say, things are busy. This past week I have been engaging in wonderful conversations with the teachers about their Professional Development Plan goals. It is always great to sit down and talk about researching aspects of pedagogy to improve student achievement. I am looking forward to seeing all of our plans come alive. Perhaps we can take a breath at Thanksgiving.
