Saturday about testing and mandated retention. I need to prepare some comments, but tonight I'm just noodling around, watching the Phillies beat the hell out of Miami. I gave a talk about data today. I thought I was inspiring and passionate about the greatness of our school, but then someone told someone else that I "raked people over the coals." Let me tell you something my friends. I did no raking over coals. That statement was nothing short of a lie, and I told many people that. I'm not a coal raker. It's not how I roll. I support, I don't thwart. I cheer, I don't instill fear. I emote, I don't float. Okay, I don't know what that last thing meant, but the important thing to remember is that I don't rake people over hot coals, I focus on positive goals. Anyone who knows me will corroborate this.
