Tomorrow I am meeting with my amazing web designer, Alison Leipzig, to go over final things for my website and to learn how to make changes and/or add content. I’ll tell you right now that the resources page is going to be sparse at first, consisting only of John Holt’s books & info, but will fill up as I go along. My plan is to add one or two resources each day until it’s complete.
That said, I am super excited about launching the new site, and hope you will love it.
In addition, we are one week away from the Evening with Michael Ellsberg that I have arranged for members of NYCHEA and any of you who might happen to be in the city next Wednesday evening. Blake Boles will be flying in from Asheville on the day as well, and I’ve got 60 adults confirmed for the evening so far. A wonderful number for our NYCHEA community. If you are anywhere near the Tri-State, I urge you to join us. It’s only $10 for non-members and it is going to be fantastic!
There is a lot going on, from the website to the event next week to me planning to attend a few upcoming education conferences, the most exciting of which is the AERO conference, being held in Portland Oregon the first week of August. Ken Robinson is giving the keynote address! In addition, I’ve been thinking about and answering a flurry of questions from people who are considering taking their kids out of school, which makes me even more excited about my new site.
So I’m busy lately – all in a good way. The kids are almost as excited as I am about the things going on, which makes everything more enjoyable. Maya will be videotaping the Evening with Michael Ellsberg for me, and we are all looking forward to hosting Blake for part of the time while he’s in town.
My posting may be interrupted for a day or two when the new site goes up and I get comfortable with it, but bear with me and I’ll get back on track as soon as possible.
