Anne's gifts to us--

Countless gifts bestowed so selflessly—
The gift – a model for the pure celebration of others
of preservice teachers here and here, of exceptional teaching, of women bloggers, of award winners, and of course of students here and here

The gift -- a front line advocate for the abolition of high stakes testing

The gift – a model for building a learning community

The gift -- a model for reflecting on learning and thinking

The gift – a model for nurturing a joy of learning

The gift – a model for collaboration and connections

The gift -- transparency

The gift -- vision

The gift -- rationale

The gift – creativity
Anne’s gifts to us --

What joy, what learning, what depth of thought might transform our classrooms if these gifts were graciously accepted, models adapted and then realized?
