I was in the hardware store when I first heard the news, though I did not know what I was hearing. As the cashier tallied my purchase, I overheard a reporter on the store’s radio make the peculiar announcement that a plane had crashed into the World Trade Center. At the time, I thought of it as little more than a curiosity. How wrong I was.
Once again, in November, school districts throughout the state will have overrides on the ballot. Most, if not all, districts do this because the funding formula from the state is over 30 years old and does not meet the cost of doing business in the year 2014. Think about it; can you get a gallon of gas for 95 cents today? Well, that’s essentially what they are asking schools to do today.
Alyssa Kimble, a soon-to-be fourth-grader in White Plains, N.Y., says she uses the desk in her bedroom for “everything” — creating lesson plans for her make-believe school, writing stories and storing stuff.

Higley Traditional’s MacDonald finds happiness in education
By Eric Mungenast
Julie MacDonald would be a roller-skating waitress principal had she followed the career path set by her first-grade self. She didn’t quite achieve those lofty aspirations, but MacDonald has found an occupation that leaves her more than satisfied with life: teaching.
That wasn’t always the case for MacDonald, as her first option was to become a nutritionist. (She calls the 14-year-old version of herself “very nutritionally advanced” for her age and she still works out frequently.) But her work as a nutritionist left her miserable.
“I woke up one day and said, ‘You know what? I’m not happy, and I don’t want to make others miserable,’” she says.
So MacDonald decided to reverse course and study education, following in her parents’ steps to become a teacher. She mixed classes and her full-time job with daily exercise routines that got her up at 2 a.m. each day. (She was and remains something of a Starbucks aficionado.)
MacDonald now gets to apply her caffeine-boosted energy every school day with her students at Higley Traditional Academy, where she taught third grade in the most recent school year. MacDonald’s goal is to keep students engaged and eager to enter her classroom — otherwise, she says, she’s not doing her job as an educator.
And while she may never become the roller-skating waitress principal she dreamed about, life is moving along swimmingly.
“I go to work and I love my life every day,” says MacDonald.
