This ideological decision will have a devastating effect on our students and families, employees, programs, and facilities.

Recently, I’ve spent a lot of time working one-on-one with children in Pre-K and kindergarten to work on their individual math plans, tailored to their needs. These young learners enjoy calendar time, temperature, time and date — and of course, exploring of the hands-on and “eye spy” variety.
