Great quotes from the NASSP Conference last week:
Kids need to hear that they are SOMEBODY every day at school.@PrincipalKafele
“Educators are the only ones going to bed worrying about other people’s kids” #nassp16
@rickwormeli2 “Grading should not be a gotcha situation.”
True professionals aren’t seeking the easy way out. Education is hard. #NASSP16
“If the leaders/teachers are afraid to take risks, the kids are going to be afraid to take risks.”
“Please feel free to complain, if you can offer a solution.”
