This past weekend many of the Wonderland teachers went on a staff retreat to the Ojai Foundation Center about 70 miles north of Wonderland School. This picture of a hummingbird that landed in Michael Hancock's hand is just one of the many magical moments the weekend produced. Although Wonderland is a school with many gifted teachers, the weekend was a reminder that strong communication, a commitment to teamwork and mutual respect and support are among the most important teaching practices. Colleagues -- thank you for making my first retreat experience (ever, I think) I great one. And parents -- thank you for underwriting the cost of this highly useful professional development experience.
