Guest blogger - Greg Cruey

My RFP for

guest bloggers

has gotten some responses. I'm excited!

First out of the chute is Greg Cruey. I asked Greg for a short blurb about

himself. Here's what he sent me:

Greg Cruey is a career changer; he became a classroom teacher a few years

ago, at the age of 43. Two graduate degrees and a decade of overseas travel

earlier in life have left him with, among other things, an abiding interest in

education policy and a love for learning and for children. Today he teaches in a

small, rural elementary school in an impoverished portion of

Appalachia. Greg blogs regularly at his personal blog.

Wow! I can't wait to read his thoughts on school leadership!

Greg will be blogging next week and I am lining up some other guests on the

calendar. If you're interested in being a

guest blogger

, let me know!
