Having “disclaimed,” let me add that blogging is more a conversation than mere reflection, and I enjoy receiving and replying to comments to this blog. As one of my mentors, Michele Martin noted, blogs work best when commenting occurs. As she also noted, we assume that we’re all grown-ups here, so any comments people leave should be reasonably civil and productive. I reserve the right to moderate or remove comments if there’s a problem, although I’m pleased to say that there’s usually not an issue!

Take the time to get to know me through my blog, and please give me feedback on what you find!

  1. Hello Britt,
    I saw your comment on Sue Water’s blog and wanted to say hello from Fredericksburg. I did my M.Ed at VCU about 7 or 8 years ago. I look forward to reading your blog.

  2. Hi Britt!
    You’re my hero! I’ve enjoyed reading your blog–it reminds me of how much I miss being a part of your teaching and learning team. I’ll check in from time to time…
    Best,

  3. Dear Mr. Watwood,
    my name is Ladka Mortkowitz and I’m a reporter for AFP (Agence France-Presse) based in Prague, Czech Republic. My primary role with the AFP is to debunk fake news; I’m currently working on a piece about a misleading Facebook post that gives false information about wearing face masks during the COVID-19 epidemic. I believe the post used your image: https://www.facebook.com/michael.bor.961/posts/647798949386822
    Would you be so kind as to get back in touch with me and confirm that
    a) this is indeed you;
    b) you are not a medical doctor;
    c) you have not given any speeches /advice regarding the proper use of face masks?
    I would greatly appreciate your help with this. There has been a lot of fake news about this pandemic, and we are trying to root out false information to keep people informed, not misinformed.
    Best regards,
    Ladka Mortkowitz Bauerova

    1. You are correct, Ladka – first time to my knowledge that I had my image hijacked. I am not a doctor of medicine, nor have I given any speeches regarding wearing masks. I have posted on FB a picture of the mask my wife made me…but that was as far an endorsement as I went.
