Day 72 (of 184) ______ in memory of @joe_bower #legacyofJoeBower (it may be a day early but Joe is worth breaking a schedule for)

Sometimes there are no words. But ideas last as a legacy. I was saddened this weekend to hear of the passing of educational leader Joe Bower. Being in Alberta and myself in BC, our paths would not have crossed….if not for Twitter and other forms of social media. Thank you Joe for your inspiration. Education has lost another giant on whose shoulders we must now stand on.

Please take some time to read from his blog:

And one of my fave quotes from him: “Recognition contradiction: children who get the most recognition don’t need it & children who need it the most don’t get it”
