Surprisingly the weather hasn't been unbearable.
I've been in Arizona for almost a week and thunderstorms and thunderheads have abound to protect me from the sun and to keep the temperature no warmer than 100 degrees.
I was expecting sweltering, crazy hot.
My lips are a little parched, but other than that I am keeping well-hydrated with bottled water provided for me at the various sessions I am attending this week at the KIPP School Summit.
I am continually impressed with education and the discussion around how it's practiced and its impact in the United States.
I am continually impressed that multicultural best practices continues to be a novel idea that needs to be instituted.
But I am also excited that tehre is no complacency.
Excellence is a must.
