Holiday Best Wishes


Here are my best wishes for your holiday season. May there be peace, joy, giving, and thankfulness as you celebrate with family and friends.

We’re having a quiet, white Christmas at our farm in Pennsylvania. I’m giving the birds extra seed and the neighbors the Christmas cookies my Mom used to make.

Thanks for reading this blog. I enjoy writing it—sometimes for reasons that are selfish. It’s a great place to try out new ideas—things I’m thinking about, tentative new insights and understandings. I am always happy when I find something I think you’ll find useful. New ideas are the lifeblood that keeps our teaching healthy and effective. I keep thinking maybe I won’t find any more. I’ve been searching them out for many years now, but so far there’s still a ready supply. That there is still more to be discovered and known about teaching and learning attests to their intrigue and complexity.

So I’ll keep writing and hope that you’ll keep reading, but not again until the first week in January. Meanwhile, let the festivities begin!
