I’m still recovering from the excitement of the Teach to Lead Boston Summit, which ended eight days ago. After spending a good part of Christmas vacation obsessively begging for votes for my idea, I was literally jumping up and down when I received my invitation to the summit. For a few seconds.
Then, I got to work on assembling our team of most incredible middle school teachers. I have to admit, I was shocked that four other people wanted to spend an entire weekend obsessing over Writing Across the Curriculum for English Language Learners and Students with Disabilities. Yet, they did, and what happened at the summit?
Well, we met wonderful educators from around the country (and even a few from the United Kingdom). We talked education (and ate amazing food) all weekend long. And most importantly, we came away with a Logic Model – a plan of how to turn our ideas into reality. It was my kind of workaholic’s dream weekend.

The only downside to the weekend was missing my husband and my beautiful daughters, Sofia and Francine. But it was great to receive a text with the photo below that said: “Have a great day, Mommy! Also remember to eat your lunch and drink your water!”
