Apparently, I struck a nerve. Several teachers and administrators approached me after the presentation to say that this was the best presentation they have ever heard in their 10, 15, 18 years in the district. After the large group presentation, I met with teachers from Pineland Regional's focus groups to answer questions, address their "wonderings" and offer advice. I was so impressed by the level of interest and openness they brought to the conversation. With this kind of beginning to the school year, 2016-2017 is likely to be their best year yet!
