This blog is dedicated to exploring and sharing ideas, practices, and leadership that result in learning. All of us are learners, and thinking of educational reform in this light allows us all to play a role in teaching and learning. Learning doesn't mean that we make no mistakes. Learning is taking every opportunity to improve what has happened in the past. It is my hope that as I share what is happening in Van Meter Schools, I learn from others. And we then make teaching and learning the best it possibly can be for our students, our teachers, and our community.
