Why I am in the Business of Education
At the first staff development of the school year, I had everyone write on an index card and share the answer to the following statement -Why I am in the Business of Education. As we prepare for the next round of state testing, please take the time to find that card and reflect on it.
Have a great weekend!
The Brick House Committee will be meeting on Tuesday to discuss the incentive for the last quarter.
