The educational system in IL is on tenterhooks, financially, and philosophically. Cuts loomed this year, and I dodged the bullet. Common Core, flipping the classroom, and challenging the Industrialist model education is based on: all these items are up for grabs and hot! Just to name a few. I admit I had my résumé at the ready, assuming the worst for my job status. I work for an incredible District that is KNOWN fore retaining its staff. I can’t IMAGINE what the future holds for education in IL. All I know is I feel blessed to look forward to my end of year activities in Library Class. I have a Guatemalan Worry Doll activity, and also bought plastic READ bags for the students to carry their summer Public Library books.
