This room will fill with more than 80 students and their mentors over the next two days. We've spent all summer working up to this day and it's finally here! It's the first night of tutoring and mentoring for the 2009-2010 academic year! We have a lot of seniors getting ready for college and a lot of 7th graders who are brand new to our program. It's going to be a great year!
Thank you so much for supporting me in this new endeavor. It means a lot to hear my friends say, "I love your blog!" Personally, it's nice to know that people are reading what I post, and professionally, it's nice to know that people are engaging with my ideas. This fellowship is a learning process and you all are part of it. Everyone I talk to and everything I experience is a part of it. I've learned a great deal in 2 1/2 months, but there is much more to discover. I hope you will continue to follow me along the way.
