first chapter in my book that I co-edited reflects upon my time
at the Little Red Schoolhouse. I fondly remember Mrs. Colvin. She
embodied all that teaching is and should be. If anyone is
interested, the book is High-Stakes Teaching: Practices that
Improve Student Learning. I thought it important to remember one
that truly did practice teaching in a way that improved all of
her students' ability to learn - even though she was years ahead
of the focus of No Child Left Behind.
