Once upon a time…

… there was a thinker.  A messy thinker that flitted about Great Thoughts and landed on seemingly significant, but difficult questions. In her quest to make sense of her story, she landed here. A processing platform to name the noticings, to label the details that lend to crafting a cohesive plot.

As the Director of Teaching and Learning at The American School of Sao Paulo, my days are littered with plots, with characters, with conflicts and resolutions. This is the story of us trying to figure it out mid-plot — to determine importance and ask good questions.  We are a lucky community of learners at Graded, a respectful group of learners, but not always graceful. At the center is the best of intentions.
