Vocab Gal On Twitter: Education Link Love
Is anyone else having a hard time believing that we are heading into our second week of November? For months I've been anticipating the NCTE Annual Convention and now I only have to wait 10 days! I'm hoping that somehow the fiddling of the clocks yesterday will make time slow down... Its hard to savor precious moments when life's a whirlwind. Well, take a stop-the-clock moment to read my favorite education links on twitter last week!
