The word on the Hill in 2009 was that the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), formerly known as the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), would begin in January and be wrapped up by the end of the 2010. However, this legislation shows no signs of moving through Congress. Let's increase the momentum for ESEA! Please urge both of your Senators and Representative not to wait any longer and reauthorize ESEA now.

I'm a junior high Enlgish teacher. Best. Job. Ever. I have three adult kids--two at home. I do a little knitting and book reviewing on the side. I run, practice yoga, and am continually searching for healthier lifestyle options. I try to focus on needs rather than wants, and am working to be able to avoid cultural messages that try to define me and urge me to consume. I'm working on not beginning every sentence with "I." I haven't had much success so far. I'll keep trying.
