Thankful for what we’ve accomplished together

With the amount of driving I do, I often catch myself pondering where we've been, where we are, and where we might be headed as a district. Last month, I was given the unique experience of speaking with educators from Michigan who are undergoing consultations around system reform. Last week [...]
