Unboxing EDrenaline Rush

They say a picture is worth a thousand words…

Late yesterday evening, my print copy of #EDrenaline Rush arrived. After 18 months of writing, researching, development, editing, and — yup — waiting, I finally got the chance to hold the finished product in my hands.


My Dad unboxing his copy:

My Mom opening hers:

And just as the day was wrapping up,  me.

Thanks, gang. So proud to call these incredible folks my parents. And so excited to share your “grandbook” with educators all around the globe.

Couldn’t have done this without you.
