Another crop

I met them; their sweet faces, shy smiles, and nervous anticipation of meeting me. The parents appeared motivated and involved. The children impressed me. I have one precious boy with a disability and he uses a voice amplifier, well, I have to use it. But he brought it and showed me how to use it and we found a place to charge it. I look forward to watching all these children grow and change through out this year.

I'm ready...

Joan, I just found our blog. It's great! I wrote about being ready on my blog too.

I really appreciate your post about professional learning communities. I'm a casualty of the idea. I really pushed for it, some the anti-change faculty pushed back, the principal said he wanted it, then he supported the opposition. I left the faculty after that year, I work in the credit recovery lab now. Oddly enough, the faculty is now struggling their way toward becoming a PLC. Word is they never could have done it without the big blow up I caused in my effort. I'm looking forward to reading more from you.
