Edutopia Featured Educator

Featured Member at Edutopia – ME?!

Edutopia is featuring me for the 6th-8th grade teacher’s group.

Alan Lipton sent my the following message:

Hi Rurik –

I was having a rough week with trying to convince my students they should not give up on themselves and this really made my day. (Spring helped a few of my students realize that their grades are not high enough to earn credits and they need to retake a class – not fun for anyone). Thank you EduTopia!

Edutopia also throws a great party during ISTE. This week they sent me the banner to post here on the website. At first I was not sure I wanted to flamboyantly announce my attendance at this party but then….why wouldn’t I? While I will probably not join the singing it will make a great break from squishing new ideas into my post-school-year brain.
