We made it to the weekend! Here are two new posts from the last few weeks.
Did you hear the news about artificial food coloring a few weeks ago? The FDA was considering putting warning labels on food containing artificial colorings. Researchers are finding they have an negative effect on the behavior of all children. Here’s a guest post I wrote for our friends over at Practically Green about it. You’ll find tips for avoiding food with artificial food colorings.
A few weeks ago author and literacy advocate, Pam Allyn, interviewed me about my book and the problem of disappearing teachers. It published on the Huffington Post Education page. In the post I discuss the need for teacher mentoring programs, teacher input and empowerment, and my own experience being mentored as a new teacher.
Have a great weekend!
