This week will be a short week for me. I will be out Friday due to a doctor's appointment in Idaho Falls. I will also be out Monday the 13th and Tuesday the 14th for Professional Development with all K-1 teachers. I am looking forward to learning lots and implementing as much as I can. I have cancelled all December volunteers due to play practice and our EVER-changing schedule this month. I hope to see you all back in January.
