Day 7 - Inspirational Colleague

Day 7 of the Reflective Teaching 30 Day Blogging Challenge

Who was or is your most inspirational colleague, and why?

My most inspirational colleague is Pernille Ripp, a teacher from Wisconsin.  She is a fantastic role model to those of us who want to try something new and exciting, and have some philosophical curiosities about traditional teaching techniques and pedagogies such as reading logs, homework, behaviour charts, etc.

I am also inspired by her creation of the Global Read Aloud.  This is an amazing program that alows kids and teachers to connect on a common novel, across the globe.

There's more, but you should check out her blog yourself!
