Happy Summer!
Sorry for the blog silence this past week, but this is a crazy time of year for all parents and educators, filled with awards assemblies, field days, championship games and of course, graduations.  By now, we've all heard or read about snippets of David McCullough Jr.'s "You're Not Special" commencement address, but the entire speech is a thing of beauty.  Apparently, his father isn't the only gifted writer in the family.  More importantly, the act of such a talented writer dedicating his life to education rather than material pursuits, truly exemplifies the advice dispensed in his speech.  Enjoy the video below:
