Eight for 2008

I finally read Eight for 2008 and it’s like someone ran the collective blogospheric wisdom through the Nonpartisanship Machine. Seriously, if you’ve ranted or enthused about it sometime in the last year, it’s probably in there. ¶ (Oh, and I think I want to be a SuperPrincipal. Half killing machine, half principal, sent from the third moon of Mars to help teachers teach and students learn. Don’t cut the lunch line though, ’cause he’s still got that killing machine thing going for him.)

I'm Dan and this is my blog. I'm a former high school math teacher and current head of teaching at Desmos. He / him. More here.


  1. Looks like a great book, I’ll check it out some time.

    Administration is a worthy and noble endeavor. Speaking of which, I need to get back to the class discussion.

  2. Nah, nah, it’s not a book. It’s a 24-page pamphlet. I killed it over thirty minutes on the road but I have to follow the words with my index finger when I read. You’ll be faster and then you should come back and tell me what you think about it.
