There's temptation to veer off track since there are many, many new initiatives and ideas floating all around me at home and at school. The ideas and initiatives are good, but not for me at this time. For me, it's time to stay the course with positive math, science, reading teaching and continued community building at home and at school--that's what takes precedence!
Sometimes new initiatives and efforts are exactly what you should do and at other times, it's not the right time to take another path for all kinds of reasons. Onward.
