Dear Blog Friends.....Amy Ludwig VanDerwater, a very talented writer and teacher that I have been honored to work with and learn from, has written a song that speaks to us all in education today. I HAD to share it because when I watched it, it made me cry a little. It also made me realize that I will NEVER refer to a child by their number.
After you watch it, if you are moved to do so, please share it with your fellow teachers. You can also go to Amy's website here and read her letter to President Obama. She shares stories about how this climate of testing is crushing the spirit of education.
Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!!
