I am on sabbatical this Spring 2023 semester, unpacking deeper learning in innovative elementary and middle schools. You also may be interested in my two new podcasts, LeaderTalk (interviews of principals at deeper learning schools) and Redesigning for Deeper Learning (redesigning lessons for deeper learning LIVE ON AIR)? I also may have a few other things cooking… 🙂
Please get in touch if you’d like to support, chat, or learn more about any of this work!
