A HUGE thank you to my buddy Vicky McCann and more than 60 of the finest teachers from schools throughout the Archdiocese of Washington for spending a day brainstorming ways to bring an EDRENALINE RUSH to their classrooms for students from K-12. Sincere appreciation for your kindness, enthusiasm, and hospitality! And I thank you so much for taking the time out of your schedules this morning to come recharge our teaching practices and change the game. Resources from today’s session are here:
