What really matters? Common Core, FIP, Technology, and School Safety

My first Blogger entry which I have linked to +Google....When I return to school on Jan. 2, half of this school year will have quickly come and gone. So far this year, I have had a student endure minor heart surgery, another suffered the loss of a mother, and I tried to comfort and explain to more than one student, what divorce is all about. Somewhere along the way, a 5th grade non-reading student began to read three letter words, we are beginning to understand better the world of our student with apraxia, and we were starkly reminded that the daily safety and well-being of our children always trumps Common Core, FiP and iPads. May I never have to be reminded of that.
