    Hi Carey. It was good to meet you today and find out about your book. Fascinating! Jay Mathews asks if there are other schools who use the model of having one teacher who goes with the students through grade levels and I would like to point out that this is the Waldorf model (Rudolf Steiner). St. John’s University uses a similar model in a really interesting way. I will send the link to your book on to my teacher/son. Could be a good Holiday present for him. I wish you well in all your pursuits. sincerely, Dael

    Thanks, Dael, for letting me know about St. John’s University and the Waldorf model’s use of looping. It was great to meet you and your wife. I wish your son luck with his teaching. Best, Carey
