This nails it. True engagement.
We have gotten student engagement all wrong. True student engagement is not about dancing on tables, entertaining, cotton candy and lollipops. True student engagement is the result of heart-to-heart conversations, lead by adults who refuse to quit on kids!

Now that was a brutal night. And the last time I let a doctor’s advice trump my experience and observations. The backgrounder; after the twins one year warranty check-up the doctor told us that the kids should be sleeping through the … Continue reading
Just some observations on how to know if you are reaching the point of pure, beautiful exhaustion. First, this morning I put a scoop of my cereal in the dog’s dish and a scoop of her kibbles in my cereal … Continue reading
Today is Valentine’s Day. A day that men all over the world will eternally struggle with. All last week Wifey and I discussed today. The consensus was, as long as we are together with our twins, no need for gifts. So … Continue reading
