I’ve taken a number of calls from members with various ACT related questions and learned about new ACT products and updates from John Carroll (ACT Michigan). I’ve compiled the information to share with all of you. This is great stuff! Be sure to share with your counselors and staff.
Join us this week and every week at #masspchat from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Wednesday nights!
The topics this month will be:
This morning the Michigan Council for Educator Effectiveness (MCEE) released a long awaited report with its final recommendations for educator evaluations in Michigan.

I spent the last three days at the annual conference for all of the NAESSP and NASSP Executive Directors…the two weeks prior to leaving all I could think about was how much I did not want to go. I kept thinking about all of the things on my plate and how much I just wanted to finish the projects I’m currently working on. I actually even considered canceling at the last minute, but I am so glad I went.
Last summer at EdCon many of you had the opportunity to hear Tim Elmore speak about working with our students through the lens of Generation IY. His words of advice for communicating and motivating the current generation of students was inspiring. Tim continues to spread the message with very simple and practical tips for parents and those who work with youth on a daily basis.
