Teacher Team for the month of December Milton Perez & Katie Schultz. This dynamic duo doesn't just do a great job with their own students but have really stepped up to help out while Mrs. La is out. Both teachers are dedicated inclusionists who differentiate instruction on a high level. Congrats you two! #WorkLikeADog

Thank you to WENDY TUCKER, AKEA POWELL & LAURA TERRY for joining me in Chicago for the Department of Education's Teach to Lead Conference in Chicago this past weekend. If we all look dog tired its because our flight got in at 12:30AM! Congratulate these fearless leaders fighting for inclusion, equity and opportunity with community engagement for our students!
