Hello blogging world.
First of all, some of you asked to see my face. Being that my blog is over, I feel that I can now honor that request – here you go! (I was a bit younger than 40 in this photo, but those who know me will testify that I have not changed a bit!)
This is my encore post. I am now already 40, which means that my 400 days ’til 40 blogging journey is officially over. This also means that this blog has run its course.

Many educational experts believe that the present state of the educational system in the USA and abroad is less-than-desirable. Many agree that the realities of life in our current century do not necessarily align with the manner in which we are choosing to educate our children. Many agree that education is outdated and must be redesigned and re-thunk in order to become more meaningful for our children. What experts do not agree on is how we are going to do this.
