I’ve been interviewed a number of times over the past few years. And some of them, I believe, might have some useful stuff in them. So, I thought I’d bring them all together. Each one has a bit of a different focus, so I’ve divided them into categories.
If this post seems to be a self-written monument to my ego, then I won’t feel offended if you don’t give it a second glance
Here is A List Of Interviews With…Me:
Q&A: Books, blogs help teacher reach beyond Sacramento classroom is the headline of an interview with me that appeared in the Sacramento Bee.
