Challenge Based Leadership

For the last four years I have been working with a large group of educators on developing the framework and implementation of Challenge Based Learning.

Post-Halloween Depression

I love Halloween and my kids think I am crazy. I spend nights and weekends for weeks setting up our front yard and creating a haunted house in the back.
