We are very excited!...We only have three more weeks until our first deadline for Issue I, Volume I and submissions are coming in. Submissions vary, and the ideas are rolling in, so please do contribute what it is you are passionate about. Talented teachers in our area are making contributions related to eye-opening and thought provoking student art projects, the recent salary disclosures posted by WRAL, the grand gap between the "talking heads" who cry for change and those of us who are expected to implement it, as well as making the change from the corporate world to the classroom. We welcome your words :)
In addition, sadly, some of you are departing for positions and careers in which you are paid better, and treated better, and apparently that means you are leaving education...or at least your current district. In order to help us, as well as the powers that be, reflect on the reasons for your departure, and perhaps the ways to prevent it, please contact us for information on how you may complete an anonymous exit interview.
Once again, we thank all of you for your support and encouragement.
