Just love working for Education Week, maybe because I come from a family of educators? I can only imagine keeping a room full of teenagers occupied for hours on end, plus you've got to make them learn something! That is tough work people, with not a ton of acknowledgement. So it is nice to make the teachers feel a bit like rockstars when we take their picture, let them know that someone is paying attention. And to all my old profs at Richard Montgomery High School, (especially Julie Newcomer, my photography teacher, who taught me how to bulk load my first roll of Tri-X film ) just wanted to say, "Don't ever doubt that you make a difference."

Spent with Vancouver Public School's Superintendent Dr. Steven T. Webb as he talked about the district rolling out their 1 to 1 computing initiative, pairing each k-12 student with digital learning devices. That man is quite the mover, shaker and sound bite maker.
