I guess I still have a blog? That I haven’t updated in over two months? Yeah. Sorry about that. September was insane, with conferences and board meetings and receptions and curriculum development (seriously), and then October I was off galavanting across this great country (Skyline Drive, Charlottesville, Blue Ridge Parkway, Asheville, Raleigh, Beaufort, Wilmington, the […]
