Our blog's new name came from Kim Bodensteiner of Bellevue Public Schools, Nebraska. We have sent Kim a complimentary copy of the Tools for Teaching 3rd edition ebook as a thank you. She came up with a name that not only acts as the prompt for one of our fundamental ideas - calm is strength - but also works great as a blog title! Each blog post is like a relaxing breath that will help you be successful and stay in your cortex while tackling the challenges of your classroom. Thank you Kim!
