For at least the last twenty years I have sought out Pam Oken-Wright for dialogue about how to interpret children’s work and play.  In these precious opportunities between meetings at conferences or through ongoing correspondences, where we look at documentation either she or I created, I have found in Pam an incredible source of insights I would have otherwise missed.  She combines the practical knowledge of a classroom teacher with pedagogical knowledge of teaching and learning.  I feel fortunate to have Pam Oken-Wright as a colleague whose work so clearly aligns with my own.

This came up on my FB feed today. I thought it was timely after my first week back. Though you were only in my class for a short bit this week, one of my huge take-a-ways from you is the art of listening. You can read it in a textbook, but watching you in action left a huge impression on me that will not only benefit me, but most importantly, my kids! Thank you is not enough for what you have showed me and shared with me.
