I sometimes worry that we are making too much use of our experts, but it sure is impressive to consider the expertise that exists in our schools.
On Ian Juke's Committed Sardine blog I read an article from the Dean of Instruction at Noble Stree College Prep school in Chicago, title 'When Teachers Are the Experts: From Traditional to Collaborative Pro D'. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this short article summarizing the shift taking place in our schools.

(or search the blog entries at http://committedsardine.com/blog.cfm , I just shortened the URL when I posted this link to my class)
For what it is worth, I agree with Ian. I'm going to miss the donuts too!
I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the post. Did anything really connect with you? Is there anything you disagreed with? Did you find anything in there that might be useful at your school? etc.
