Cascades in the Distance

Like all great travelers, I have seen more than I remember, and remember more than I have seen. ~ Benjamin Disraeli

I am in Portland, OR this week for admin- istrative meetings with principals and superintendents across the country. It's been good so far. I've seen a lot of old friends, including former students from my first days of teaching. One of them was the presenter at the last break-out I attended. It was really good. I kept being so pleased to know what she's doing with her life!

The pictures are of the view of the Cascades I have from my hotel room window. The last is Mt. Hood...lost in the clouds... We flew by it on our way in. I wish I'd taken a picture...it'll probably never be as clear from here as it was from there...

That must be a high point of a teachers life, sitting in a former student's group and seeing her do so well. How is the weather in Portland? Have a great time.

We just passed through --- in the same city at the same time --- and didn't even realize it. I'm enjoying the sunshine and warm (compared to winter) weather here at the coast. Pure relaxation! It sounds like you are having a wonderful time with educational peers. Happy reunions and new innovations to you!

Portland is such a beautiful city... I hope somebody steered you to Powell's City of Books. It is the best bookstore I have ever visited,and I have visited many!
