This presentation was shared as a keynote address at an educational leadership conference held in Fort Worth, Texas, on April 3, 2006.

    Wesley,
    Finally got around to listening today. I felt like I was in the audience. Wonderful presentation – thanks for sharing it! – Mark

  2. Cheryl Oakes says:

    Thanks, I had a great day of skiing in Maine, then drove the long drive home from the Mountain, Sugarloaf. I had the best professional development class, in the car, sunny day and the time flew! Thanks for the informative workshop. Keep posting, I’ll keep listening.Cheryl

  3. Wesley Fryer says:

    Thanks for the feedback. I have heard from some folks that they want shorter podcasts, and I am going to get back to doing more in the 15-20 min range, but especially for people in the car or on a trip I am thinking it’s still good to have longer recordings. Glad to know you both listened and found it worthwhile.
