The Good, The Bad, and The Interesting Tweets of the Day 8 28 12

Chose to start with a good thought.

 It is a good thing to analyze our next move based on data and expertise. As educators, we have lots of input and advice. So now we can collaborate and bring positive outcomes one student at a time.

To quote a quote:

"A problem is a chance for you to do your best." Duke Ellington

Let's be our best together. Let's create a better future by empowering the kids with knowledge and skills, joie de vivre and audacity of ideas. Kids are our greatest resource.

Let's not allow the following news article again.
