A Very Special Meetup

I was excited yesterday to receive a message from Barbara Gruener, a school counselor, and the author of the amazing blog The Corner on Character.

She was in the St. Louis area attending the Character Education Conference and wanted to know if I  had time to meetup with her.  Well, of course I did!

We had lunch today and it was such a treat to chat with her about our common interests not only in working with children but also in growing up on a farm. Barbara is a high energy person with such a passion for children. Even though we only spent an hour together I feel as if I've known her a very long time.

Barbara was so gracious to give me a set of her Character Cards. I can't wait to use them!















The hostess at Cracker Barrel was kind enough to take our photo together so we can both document this special occasion.

  1. Yay - thank you SO much for lunch! What a treat to meet you and visit. I felt like I could have spent all afternoon with you, soaking up your knowledge, wisdom, and passion. Thanks for joining me in being sold out for kids!
