    Chris & Paul,
    I feel like I’m a home listening! Paul, where’s the lighting? You must be incognito!

    Paul is so right – our district is progressive, and it is hard to find time, but my principal is also very supportive (Paul and I are at different schools in the same district, but it is sad I won’t get his students!!). I like how he calls it “passion time,” especially if he can’t get in an entire hour. I do feel for those teachers who don’t have the support.

    Thanks for talking to each other & sharing! Spread the love for students learning what THEY think is valuable!

  2. Great way to share ideas. I’d love to see this used on WizIQ.
