Timely Tidbits from Janet and Marianne
“Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers.”
Alfred, Lord Tennyson
“May you always walk in sunshine.
May you never want for more.
May Irish angels rest their wings right beside your door.”
In an effort to encourage our New York State Representatives to put Teacher Centers back in the NYS budget, Marianne and an STC Policy Board Member will be attending the Committee of 100 in Albany on March 3rd. This is a NYSUT sponsored event where we go to the offices of our representatives, and speak of the need to increase funding for education in general and Teacher Centers in particular. We are working hard to keep Teacher Centers open and viable.
We thank you for all your efforts to keep Teacher Centers working, and ask that you continue in those efforts. March is an extremely important month, so PLEASE keep those faxes, phone calls, and letters going.
Featured Book of the Month: The Book Whisperer: Awakening the Inner Reader in Every Child by Donalyn Miller. “This book reminds anyone - who is lucky enough to have loved a book - what classrooms and kids have lost in our frenzy to ‘cover’ content and standardize student performance in the name of reading. This is a primer of the heart on how to make reading magical again.”
Carol Ann Tomlinson
The Book Whisperer includes an invaluable list of books that the author’s students most enjoy reading.
