it used to take a village


How many different people / things affect a student's performance on standardized tests?

Physical health?
Family worries?
Friendship woes?
Emphasis of reading at home?
The value placed on education at home and in the community?

All of the above, right?


If you live in New York State,
it's the teacher.
The teacher is the only one responsible for student achievement...
...and here I thought it took a village!

What a hoot!

happiness is . . .

is having the clouds clear
so that I can see my good round friend in the sky again.

Summer is . . .

... almost here ...

ripe and ready to enjoy
to the fullest.
