Most Recent Events with BrainSMART and CIEP

There has been a whirlwind of activity recently as Marcus and I have recently presented at the National Association of Elementary School Principals, held four events in Colorado, and are now headed to present at two SIG meetings at the American Educational Research Association conference in Vancouver. There I will present the effects of graduate study in education, mind and brain in terms of parent education and the informal learning of teachers. For more on these upcoming presentations at AERA, e-mail at

Thank you again to our teacher leader hosts in Colorado!!! So enjoyed being with you, meeting your colleagues, and growing these exciting studies in Colorado! On a personal note, I have so enjoyed spending time over the Easter holiday with our nephew, Clancy Wilson, a fine young man who is going back to the dorm today for early classes tomorrow! Now on to put the final touches on my presentations for AERA!!!!
