Sunday Salon — September 1 — 7 Comments

  1. I read Paul Tough’s book not too long ago and was really impressed by it. Though he goes off on a few unnecessary tangents, most of his points are spot on with the problems I’ve seen in the schools I’ve taught at. I’m not sure if you’ve gotten to the point where he starts talking about the chess team at one of the schools, but there’s a documentary that focuses specifically on them Brooklyn Castle ( – I saw it earlier this year and it was fantastic.

  2. Hope you’re enjoying your picnic today (and that the weather is temperate and fine).

    Yesterday, I enjoyed my Pilates Reformer class in the morning, ran errands, completed a few loads of laundry, and did a jog-bike-walk/jog workout at the gym. This morning we went for an early morning, 10-mile bike ride at the beach before it got crowded (and hot), and now I’m catching up on blogging, email, and various social media accounts. I really need to do something relaxing & fun for tonight – maybe we should take our hot dogs and salad to the park for a picnic?
