I'm shadowing James O'Brien. He is a principal in an innovative school in Brooklyn NY. He is devoted to helping students with less than wonderful backgrounds finish high school and find their talents to put them to good use after their graduation. He is combining an interdisciplinary approach to education whereby students connect what they learn with real life, so the curriculum becomes alive. Apart from content, students learn about art.
I am following him via Google Reader where he submits his reports.
