    Hello, Mr. Crosby. I am a fellow 4th grade teacher who read the Teaching Tolerance article you were featured in recently. Very inspiring! I would love to talk “teaching and teching” with you when you have the time with all that you are involved in (like the presentation you’ll be giving that posted first on your blog–good luck)!

    This really made me cry and cry. It touched me because I’ve been mostly homebound for more than a decade (I’m 57) with an illness and become SO alone in my isolation. Over the years I’ve looked for “safe” ways to communicate with others in similar situations via Skype video, perhaps even with others who love God as I do. That’s why I found you. I was doing my annual search :) I’m so glad there are people so sensitive AND RESPONSIVE and creative to others’ needs.

  11. Brian,
    I am commenting on your pingback blog “What do teachers need from administrators?” This blog is reflective of my current research, pertaining to my views of Professional Learning Communities (PLC).

    In the blog you asked for examples of awesome happenings in schools. Unfortunately, many teachers have a hard time finding something awesome to say about their relationship with administrators and school bureaucracy. In order for students to receive effective learning, every professional in the school must engage with colleagues and answer the following three questions that should inspire those within a learning community( Dufour, 2004), What do we want each student to learn? How will we know if each student has learned? How will we respond when a student experiences difficulty in learning (Dufour, 2004)? The answers to these questions lies within the minds of community based educators. The only way for students to excel academically, teachers and administrators must devise a plan in building a professional community that consist of faculty, parents teachers and administrators. This community will work together to achieve a collective purpose of life long learners; embracing models such as The Whole Child Approach, which can be implemented into their curriculum, embracing effective professional learning communities providing opportunities for adults to learn and think together, positively affecting teacher practice and school climate (The Whole Child Newsletter, 2011).

    First off, I just want to say what a fun and exciting place your classroom must be! Your students are incredibly lucky!
    My name is Chelsea and I teach a special ed resource class in NC. I also have a student, Lila, who skypes into my classroom! I do part of her homebound services and visit her twice a week as well. This is my first year teaching, and everything is… overwhelming, to say the least. I’m having trouble coming up with ideas and activities to keep Lila and the other students engaged, while still learning at the same time. She skypes into my class for a 30 minute math group. I was wondering if you had any suggestions, ideas, activites, etc. that you would be willing to share with me? I’ve not been able to find very many resources on the subject.
    Thanks so much!
    Chelsea
