I’ve been tagged by Greg Cruey, who came across this at Clif’s Notes recently.


Summer can be a great time for professional development. It is an opportunity to learn more about a topic, read a particular work or the works of a particular author, beef up an existing unit of instruction, advance one’s technical skills, work on that advanced degree or certification, pick up a new hobby, and finish many of the other items on our ever-growing To Do Lists. Let’s make Summer 2009 a time when we actually get to accomplish a few of those things and enjoy the thrill of marking them off our lists.

    Looks like I posted this too late to allow you to sign up – I’m sorry! But, since you are reading the book why don’t you participate anyways? Go here and find all the details:

    I’m in Group 2 (orange)

    Also, if there is something you’d like to post as a post rather than a comment I’d happily lend you my login and you can be my guest blogger – Nowhere in the rules is that disallowed :)
