The 2010 decade is coming to an end, and boy has it been amazing. I have enjoyed leading amazing schools, and I have enjoyed sharing my thoughts with you for almost all of this decade. As I reflect, it is hard to believe that I have been sharing my thoughts with you through this blog since 2012. There have been ups, downs, celebrations, and failures throughout this decade and with each event, it prompted a thought that I shared with you.
It is because of you that I wrote the book, "A Leader's Guide to Excellence in Every Classroom", in 2016 and followed that up with my latest book, "A Teacher's Guide to Excellence in Every Classroom". You inspired me to create a movement, #LoveMySchoolDay, where every year on a school day around April 11 (4/11), educators across North America give their communities the 411 about all the reasons they love their school.
So it is with great excitement that I share with you the LeadLearner Top 10 of the 2010 Decade
