Martin's Musings


I just want to share this simple thought I saw on Twitter. To me it says volumes about the importance of these last days of school.

Interested in KTIP training?

If you are interested in being KTIP resource teacher please let me know. If you have had the updated KTIP training, you do not need any additional training.

  • All new resource teachers and new principals have to be trained this summer.
  • There is no online homework prior to the training any longer.
  • There are several dates this summer.

I have dates and additional info if you are interested.

Another powerful reminder from Twitter this weekend!
