    We’ve covered a lot in our three years together! Instead of a rundown of dates, dress codes, etc., our faculty meetings have become more intentional, more worthwhile, and more useful. We are able and encouraged to “take away” whatever we’ve discussed in faculty meetings and implement in our classrooms. In addition, our voices are being heard. We were able to (re)-imagine a Conference Day… and lo and behold, we are trying something new. Let’s keep up the intentionality!
