Happy February!

It is with a sense of urgency that we embark upon the journey into Balanced Literacy, Writer's Workshop and the support that is needed to make all of it a living, breathing action. It is expected upon your actions and devotion that we will be able to support the teachers with valuable education which in return will ultimately strengthen the educational needs of our students. I appreciate your loyalty, commitment and support with these efforts. Thank you to all of you that participated in the webinar on 2/9, if you missed it, please let me know and I can send you the link.
