Region 4 Update - June/July
By Debbie Gordon, Region 4 Director
By the time this issue comes out, most of us will be finishing up school and summer will be upon us. I hope you can take a breath and pat yourself on the back for the tremendous load you carried the last couple of months. We have all learned so many new things about teaching and learning in a virtual space and there is so much more to know. I hope that you can take some time away from your home office and put work off your minds for a little bit before diving back in and planning for a new school year. When you are ready to jump back in, here are two resources from Region 4 I hope you check out.
