It's Father's Day, and as I've mentioned before (here and here) even Super Teachers have Dads. I want to send a shout-out to my Pops. He was the first to support and, dare I say, read this blog with regularity. He and I have worked through some things in the last thirty-odd years and each lesson has helped to make me who I am today. I hear his voice coming from me when I am teaching, and I know he would recognize some of his own sayings and style in my teaching. His calm, loving, crazy-smart, and thoughtful conversations through the years have taught me many things I use daily.
In honor of Father's Day I am going to assign a Boss's Rule number (partial list here). Just to point out, the assignment of a number is not level of importance, it's sort of a psychic choice of a number that best fits the rule. In this case, it may have something to do with the importance of the number 11 as it refers to an age where many many lessons were learned.
Rule #11Even Super Teachers have Dads.
Love you Pops,
