What a great day spent with fellow educators! Tri-county is always a time for fellowship and a chance to extend our already overwhelmed plate of expectations as teachers.
The topic was TLE with a little sprinkle of REAC3H Coaches followed by the collective sigh of “what now?”
With that I have to reflect on the knowledge shared with me today from a veteran teacher (I am so sorry that I can’t refer to her by name) who asked if what we were talking about is what they have been doing already in states like New York. When I replied that it was in fact already the practice in several states she replied that her grandchildren were from out east and that they loved what was happening in their schools. She went on to say that she had been told that everyone was reluctant at first but once the ball began rolling they quickly fell in love with the results. My response was that she testify and spread the word along with us. She smiled and said “gladly”.
Special thanks to that special lady!
