Sorry that today's intro might be short in terms of an amazingly inspirational story or videos that make you tear up a little as you have come to expect. But seriously, I am going to be pretty to the point today because like many of you I have had to answer the call. The call that stirs your inner soul, the call that gives you purpose in life, that inspires you to get moving. You all have probably experienced that call at some point. Mine has been about 6 AM this past week and has been in the form on an alarm clock buzzing. I must admit- haven't set it the rest for a few months, and I am not a fan! But that buzz marks the real reason for a stirring in my soul- I get to go back to work to hang out with other educators and make a difference!!
