It must be something about spring.

Regardless of the reason, I wanted to share my new effort, one that gets me back to teaching (which I’ve sorely missed) and gives me a chance to expand my sphere of colleagues who inspire and motivate me. Most readers will be familiar with Richard Byrne of freetech4teachers fame and Angela Maiers, author of a number of books on educational transformation.

Lessons in Entrepreneurship for Teachers”.
