California Charter School Conference

I am in San Diego for the conference (see title) with 8 of my colleagues. The conference starts tomorrow. We are looking through the agenda to select "Breakout" sessions to attend. A keynote speaker is "Coach Carter," and others seem to know who that is. I know there was a movie about him, but that is all I know. Most of the sessions are for administrators and teachers of site-based charter schools. Ours is different in that "the community is our campus." So, the classroom management, engaging teaching strategies, and using test data workshops really don't apply in the same way. It is a curious time for me. Not too interesting yet. It should be fun to be with those I work with and the resort is lovely.

Dance Wilstrong rides again!

RSS, ATOM or XML feeds

Is anyone using a feed to read the blog with success? It seems there is a problem and I am trying to figure it out. Timothy and I are only seeing posts back some months in the RSS feed.

Let us know if you have figured this out.

Sunday's LA Bike Ride

Ken and I have been doing this ride for a few years now. It is fun and it's a big crowd. And it starts really early--5:50 AM.

A 50 year old man had a heart attack and died during this ride last Sunday. I didn't see it, but we heard about it on TV that evening. Someone who is a friend of a friend who rode, saw the guy getting CPR and said, wow that guys is really old. But the 50 year old guy who passed away wasn't me. I'm glad.
