My former professor, friend and colleague Dr. Debbie Linville has just moved back from TX and I couldn't be happier to have her back in town. She's taught me almost all I know about literacy and reading and writing instruction and I have the utmost respect and admiration for her both as an educator and a remarkable woman. She's been one of Clara's biggest cheerleaders and faithful pray-ers from the start, so it was a real treat for her to come and join us for lunch and to read Clara stories before her naptime. I have no words to really express what a joy it was for me to watch her rocking Clara and reading (really DLTAing) with her. Truly one of those moments I wanted to freeze in my memory and store in my heart. Let's do it again soon, Debbie!
