The Week in Review - The Most Popular Posts

Good morning from Maine where I'm up before the sun to get a little work done before starting a day of play with my kids and dogs. Much of the snow that covered our yard just last week melted away in the spring-like temperatures that we had twice this week. In other words, mud season has started!

This week I had the privilege to speak at the Inspired Learning Convention in Upton, Massachusetts. Thank you to Dave Quinn and his staff who put that event together. If you'd like to have me speak at your school or conference, please get in touch by sending an email to richardbyrne (at)
