“Timing is everything, in education as in many other fields. It’s not enough to teach well. You have to teach well to kids who are ready to learn, kids who are developmentally ‘ripe’ for learning.”

Thanks for stopping by! It's great to get to know others that have similar interests! Where are you living in UT?
I love your book list. It's great that you've kept track so well of what you've read personally, as a family, and as a companionship. Sounds like you've been blessed with an awesome husband too! I'd like to keep in touch with you!
