Summer's Over - Back to Work!

It is fitting, in a way, that this post is my first since I took my summer hiatus.  My last post was on the topic of what reading means to me, and thanks to my good fortune in winning a signed copy of Seth Godin's LINCHPIN, and as I write this I am just about to embark on a new book to start a new season of personal professional reading. 

I usually read during the summer, but for some reason (likely the reading I've been doing for my Ed.D.) I spent a little less time reading for personal professional reasons this summer.  I'm looking forward to getting back in the swing of things next week after the kids get up and running at school.

I also have borrowed what looks like an excellent book on change, The Fourth Way, by Andy Hargreaves, and will be starting that next week too.  I'm itching to get going!

In general, it is good to be back and putting my reflections into print again.  I know (next to) no one (thanks mom - AND Malkie!) likely reads this, but blogging helps me refine my thoughts and progress my thinking.  It helps me make sense of things when they often seem to be coming our way in education at 100 mph.  My next post?  Likely on how the AISI project structure supports educational change in our province and what I think the connection is to the systemic change that is looming on our provincial horizon.

Cheers!
