Happy snowy, frigid 2017 Michigan Monday Moanin to all of you. For many a long break and a celebration that may be spiritual, family focused or both are a few weeks away. This is the time of year that many schools are conducting food drives, providing backpacks with the essentials, food and clothing as well […]
Happy Monday Moanin to everyone. During this past week I began reflecting on why can’t educators get on the same page? Why can’t we figure out what we need to focus on in all of our schools? It seems to me that if we all work together and collaborate more, all learners will benefit.
