  1. Thank you so much for hosting Julie recently! It was 3;30 in the morning and I was keynoting that day in North Dakota so I missed it but heard it was a great conversation!

    It is such a powerful story that we can all connect in this way between classrooms and we’re spending this summer working on improvements as well! Thank you for taking the time to have Julie on the show!
