    I wanted to be added to any directories or mailings you may send out. We find that school administrators are highly interested in learning about our services that we provide. Many, many school systems are going without speech therapists onsite which means students are missing their much needed help and our expertise.

    We also provide webinars only for school administrators at no charge per their request and convenience.

    Great blog! I have been reading for several months now. All this blogging and web 2.0 tools have led me to create my own blog as well.

    Keep the posts coming!

    I really like yout blog! I am at counselor at a middle school in Texas and I have developed a resource to help increase communication between schools and homes. I plan to launch my site in a couple of weeks. I have a blog on the site but I dont know much about blogging. I am looking to pay someone to write for me…are you looking for some extra work over the summer?? Do you allow people to advertise on your site. Well let me know what you think I can send you more details. Thanks a million!!!!

    Hi Michael,

    I am going into my 3rd year as Assistant Principal and I recently started a blog myself. I have spoken to my technology coordinator about starting an administrator blog this summer. I have thoroughly enjoyed what I have read in your blogs thus far, you certainly have a clever sense of humor. I too would like to be added to any directories or mailings. I work in an ubran district in New Jersey and believe me I have some stories to tell. I am hoping to expand my blog as a way to communicate and motivate my staff to engage in technology practices more in the classroom. I look forward to reading more of your blogs. I will certainly pass your blog along to my colleagues.

    Hi Michael, I wondered if you have had a chance to view the film Race To Nowhere? I recommend it to all Teachers, Principals and Superintendents. I hope that you will take the time to check it out and realize the importance of the message it conveys.

    Thank you,

    Hi Michael,

    Thank you for bringing out the humor in education. I look forward to reading more.

    I actually just started a blog about education and life in general. I’d love you for you to check it out!:

    I need help infusing humor into my school. I have a few too many teachers who complain about students’ lack of motivation and misbehavior, and what I am seeing is a need for teachers to not take every little thing so seriously. Do you have any tips to help teachers lighten up?

    I recently found your blog via Teach Thought and found it to align well with the principles we teach here at Studer Education. I am interested in doing a collaboration with you.
    At Studer Education, we help school system leaders create great places for students to learn, teachers to teach, employees to work, and parents to send their children. Likewise, our book Maximize Performance helps leaders across the nation to achieve real results in school districts and outlines how this proven approach transfers to education through a mixture of stories and explicit teachings.
    Would you be interested in reviewing Maximize Performance?
    If interested, I’d be happy to send you a copy of the book. I can also send you a customized discount code for your readers to purchase their own copy of the book.

    Thank you,
