    As we in Pennsylvania are preparing to enter the standardized testing “season”, I needed to be reminded. Connections are the most valuable teaching tool I have. Thank you!

      Yes, Anneliese, in a world where the most common question in the classroom is “Will this be on the test?” I can feel your pain. IMHO, helping your students to learn how to build and strengthen relationships is one of the most important skills a teacher can impart. All the best.
