On another note, I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate the planning, organizing, and implementing of technology, iReady and Benchmark Advanced that has taken place over the last few weeks. I know it takes a lot of time to plan for instruction, assessments, and differentiation and want to let you know how exciting it has been to see it in action in your classrooms! Kudos to each of you for making this happen!
