Bud, I just wanted to thank you for inviting those of us who couldn’t be there to be there virtually. You provided such a great service for English teachers everywhere who were connected, for attendees no doubt who were connected and for NCTE, not to mention the students who will see there teachers have hope for the future as well with all these connected conversations able to go on. And thank you for your reflections after the conference here as well. I particularly liked “I have faith in language and in language arts teachers, in the power of the written and spoken word and all the other ways we have to create, compose and share, and I know good things are coming”. I too share that faith, as I look forward to starting my new job as English/Literacy coordinator at a new school in 2009.
