Quote of the Week: "Discipline is about making choice after choice that's aligned with our intentions. In any moment, we can make a choice that supports an intention; or we can make a choice that supports an old habit, a lack of intention, a fear." ~Chetna Mehta
Educator Resource: April Book Study (100% online & FREE!) - Look Beyond the Clouds: Transform Your Daily Habits to Overcome Burnout and Find Joy in Teaching Again The final book study for this school year on TeachIllinois is starting TODAY, but it’s not too late to join. This title was recommended by a teacher friend, and a great way to end the year on a positive note. Illinois educators can earn 6 PD Hours. Out-of-State people will get a certificate of completion for 6 hours.
Dad Joke: The word 'vaccine' is the only English word that two consecutive letters are pronounced differently. Don't ask how I know - I found out accidentally.
It's APRIL! Warm weather is coming!
