A Little Bit of This and A Little Bit of That

This past week was quite long, overwhelming, yet also inspiring and motivating. There were workshops and speakers and working breakfasts and more to get us ready and in the right mindset for our upcoming school year. I haven’t had time to actually get ready (plans, IEPs, etc).
