The Week in Review - The Most Popular Posts

Good evening from the world headquarters in Woodstock, Maine where the blueberries are ripe. Picking blueberries in my yard is one of my favorite things about living in Maine.

This week I was busy presenting six webinars including three for Simple K12. Thank you to everyone who participated in one or more of the webinars. The recordings of the Simple K12 webinar recordings will be available next week.

Next week  I'm hitting the road to speak in Mooresville, North Carolina. Professionally, there's nothing I enjoy more than visiting schools to work directly teachers.  If you would like to have me visit your school, send an email to richardbyrne (at)
