I have returned! I took a few weeks off, had some don time, a little vacation and some home projects. But I am ready to get back to it. During the break, I decided to add a little organization to my Twitter and Diigo posts. If you follow me on Twitter (and why wouldn’t you?), you know I try to post 2-3 things a day on various topics related to education and leadership. I am going to continue doing that, but I have more of a plan. Monday and Friday will be resources on leadership. Tuesday and Thursday I will focus on some of my favorite educational leaders posts. Wednesday will be educational technology day. As always, everything I bookmark in Diigo will be summarized here each and every Sunday.
Enjoy your summer, and read my latest post on why summer is so important to school leaders (well, at least to me).
