Half way home! During my many years in education, I’m always amazed how fast the school year goes. The end of December marks the half-way point for our 2011-12 school year. About this time of year we need to review the goals that we’ve set for our students and ourselves. Hopefully you are in the process of determining your next step to meet these goals.

In Connections, you will find blogs and articles that will help you with your professional development and ideas for students’ success. Our blogs are created by AEA staff and are designed to start discussions, support and help folks network with each other in areas that we would normally not be able to support for you at the AEA. As our resources have gotten tighter and tighter, the blog section of our Connections is a way for us to support LEA teachers and staff in the mission of supporting students in our classrooms. Please take a look at a blog that would fit your area of interest.

Have a happy, happy 2012!
