Regular readers know that in the fall I began a new feature called “Interview of The Month” where I interviewed various people in the education world about whom I wanted to learn more. You can see read those interviews here.
These interviews will continue in the coming year. I’ll be posting one with Jim Burke, author of numerous books and founder of the popular English Companion Ning group, next week.
I have quite a few other guests “lined-up.” I thought I’d share who they are in this post and invite readers to contribute questions they might like me to ask — you can leave it in the comments section of this post or use this contact form. I don’t feel I can absolutely guarantee that I’ll use all that are suggested, but it’s highly likely I’ll ask them.
I’m also interested in hearing suggestions of others you think would be good guests.
Here are the people who I’ll be interviewing over the next several months, not necessarily in chronological order:
Anne T. Henderson, researcher on parent engagement issues and co-author of Beyond the Bake Sale: The Essential Guide to Family/School Partnerships
Deborah Meier, the well-known educator, author and blogger
Judy Willis, teacher and neurologist who has written several books on brain-based learning
Sue Waters, the most helpful and best-liked person in the education blogosphere
Carrie Rose, Executive Director of the nationally-acclaimed Parent Teacher Home Visit Project
Robert Pondiscio, writer of the Core Knowledge blog
Judie Haynes, author and longtime teacher of English Language Learners
I’m looking forward to hearing your suggestions!
