### Monday Must Reads: Volume 33

Happy Monday! I had a fun weekend if you consider reorganizing your entire kitchen to be fun. It's certainly an adventure cooking anything now since I have to remember where I put everything! I'm looking forward to this new week of adventures in the classroom. To help inspire me, I set down each weekend and reread all my twitter likes. I write a weekly round-up post of the most inspiring tweets and blog posts which I call "Monday Must Reads." I hope you enjoy the latest volume.
