The Power of Their Ideas

I met one of my heroes today.

Her name is Deborah Meier.

On my flight to Houston for TFA Summer Institute, I read her book, The Power of Their Ideas. It was the a confirmation of why I wanted to teach, it provided a promise of what schools could be - for any children, anywhere, and it has remained an inspiration and a standard against which I measure my own work.

More on today after I make progress on grading!
