While lining up to get on a plane last week in Chicago, I began talking to a young woman. Our plane was delayed, and we were wondering how long it would be until our crew arrived and we could board. “You look so familiar,” she said to me. I asked if she was a teacher, and voila! Turns out Lauren teaches at a Jewish day school in Chicago. But she used to teach in Houston at Lovett Elementary, one of the schools where I studied math work stations. Small world! We had fun flying together to Houston and talked all about teaching and books, etc. It was a lovely way to spend the flight back home.
