Thank you so much for subscribing to this newsletter.
My aim is to share some of my work in progress. As an admirer of Austin Kleon, I try to adhere to his mantra: Show Your Work as much as possible.
With each newsletters, you can expect a general update from on things I am thinking about and working on, links that caught my eye, and something that made me laugh.
If you’ve been wondering what I have been up to at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, you can check out some of the work that I’ve contributed to here: http://teacher2teacher.education/. As I have done before through efforts like #engchat, I am working with a team to connect more teachers to one and another in order to improve practice.
I hope this newsletter finds you well and serves as an easy way for us to keep in touch and share each other’s work. I’d love to hear what you’re working on, thinking about, etc.
