Thank you so much to all who entered, I am so glad I get to send a copy of this book to the lucky winner who was selected by a random number generator and notified yesterday!
I don’t remember when I first heard of Colby Sharp but I remember thinking to myself that he seemed like a nice guy. Like someone, I could be friends with, like someone I would have been friends with in school if e had gone to school together.
I do remember the first time I met Colby Sharp. He and the rest of the Nerdtastic team had asked if I would come to Nerdcamp. How could I say no? So one July morning, I got up at 4:30 AM and drove the 5 hours to Parma, Michigan so I could deliver my very first Nerdtalk and the rest, we could say, is history.
I have met a lot of people, but only a few are in Colby’s class; kind, giving, funny, dedicated to his family and to bettering our profession not for his own gains, but for kids everywhere. He simply has his heart in the right place. Is it, therefore, any wonder that I am so excited for his very first book project to be released today? That’s right, the much anticipated, the incredibly worth it, the must read and then use teacher book The Creativity Project comes out today.
The book’s description:
So what better way to celebrate it, then to offer up a copy for a giveaway! I hope you don’t mind, Colby, this book needs to be in the world and in the hands of teachers everywhere. All you have to do to enter is to leave a comment below and then you should buy the book as well. I will close the contest on Saturday, March 17th.
