How do you name what you teach?

The pandemic brought attention to education. Education should always have our attention and focus. It is the key to the success of our society as our next generation learns, creates, and discovers. Critical Race Theory was/is a big topic for discussion on what was being taught. What other programs, curriculums are being taught in schoolsContinue reading “How do you name what you teach?”

Critical piece

“The miracle is not that we do the work, but that we are happy to do it.”-Mother Teresa Leaders provide lots of information, data, strategies, and models for success.
