What our Members are learning and/or reading:
Karen Nix, Instructional Officer for Mesquite ISD and former President of LearningForward Texas, introduced me to a book entitled Brain Rules. I know that many of you have read it so this is a good time to recommend it to a friend, colleague or family member.

(emphasis is mine). Contemplate that statement for a moment. Are there any two more important things we should worry about as educators?
