  1. Greetings. I’m a freelance writer for ASCD and I’m writing an article on using movement to enhance learning in the secondary classroom.

    I came across an article that I believe you wrote on this subject. I’m hoping you will be willing to talk with me. I’m on a rather tight deadline, so I’m hoping we can arrange to talk sometime this week (may 13-17, 2015) or early next week. I would call you at a time that is convenient for you.

    Thank you.
    Kathy Checkley
