Hi Rick;
Nice site.
I don’t surf much but it’s very easy to use, just like your book. Congrats.

OK, so I am JUST beginning to wrap my head around the fact that we won’t be seeing your smiling face around campus everyday, it hit home tonight when Dane and I sang a special song together, and I told him we needed a bass player….:) I decided to log on to your website, it’s great! I will be getting “my words from Rick” fix here often! I look forward to it, and to all your success!

cheers, susan

Hi Rick!
Great blog!
I would love your thoughts on parents playing a role in helping their child with emergent reading. I would love to read about your challenges in the younger grades at your school.
Hope to read more thoughts from you on Twitter!

Willowwind School, a progressive PK-6th grade school in Iowa City, is celebrating its 40th Anniversary this year. We love your work and wanted to inquire about your speaking availability at a 40th Anniversary Lecture for the school and larger Iowa City community. If you would be interested, I would like to look toward dates in May or October.

Thank you!

I’m very impressed with the intelligent, organized approach in your blog. Will read through many topics that I didn’t know I was interested in. I’ll also recommend it to my friends and family.
Glad to have been told about it.
Best wishes,
Wes Westmeyer

Hi Rick,

I think your website is fantastic and so many of your ideas resonate with me. I hope to do my bit to support parents and educators to encourage children to reach their potential which I believe is limitless! I would love to think we could bring you to the West coast of Ireland sometime to inspire us in our efforts.

Keep up the amazing work.
All the very best,

Hi Rick: New to you and hoping to solicit some feed back on a publication recently released. It is a provocative read but simply for the benefit of children with more demands on parents. Your feed back will be greatly appreciated

Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4
year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell
to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell

Rick November 29, 2016 at 7:45 am
