Interesting Information on Brain-Based Learning

Laughing Old news: I received the latest edition of Courageous Learners, one of the texts from my graduate school brain-based learning curriculum.  On page 163 was a vignette written by none other than ME!   I loved sharing that information with my students and showing them that anything is possible with a little hard work.  Tongue out 

Cool This just in..Guess who is on the cover of the latest edition of "Celebrating Teacher Leaders?" Smile

Did you know that students learn better when they feel accepted? Wink
