This is just a quick note to say I am in ‘the other Washington’ (DC) for the national safe schools roundtable convening, representing Safe Schools Coalition.
I arrived on Tuesday and spent the night at my friend Cynthia’s house and it was great to see her again. Then a ride on the DC metro (great transport system) and checked into the hotel. Then I got to hang out with another old friend Dave who I last saw when we were here in 2000. That was fun!
Meetings started last night, and go all day today. And I FINALLY get to meet Lisa Weiner-Mafuz in person! She is on the board of FUAH — and we have known each other, been good friends and worked together for about 10-12 years – and have never been in the same space in time, but today that changes as she is going to be presenting at the meeting. YAY!
More on the trip later. I need to shut down this machine and head out for the start of the convening and breakfast.
