Connections

The purpose of the Northwest AEA "Connections" blogs is to connect educators, parents and school administrators with one another by sharing news, best practices, resources, professional development opportunities and success stories. A two-way dialogue is encouraged so that, together, we can help students reach their potential and achieve in the classroom and in life. The blogs will be updated regularly during the school year.
