A challenge for you...
Although this post was written by a principal, the message is still an important one for all of us to reflect upon. The post is called "5, 4, 3, 2, one-derful!" and was written by Kas Nelson (@kasnelson), a #principalsinaction all star. I took her challenge and here is my post. Even if you aren't a blog writer, I encourage you to take the challenge!
I'm more than excited for today. Not much left to say but see you soon and have a great long weekend.
