John T. Spencer

RT @HowePrincipal:This classroom library has way too many books.

RT @Mr_Brett_Clark: “I wish the politicians were more involved in education. They really get it.”

Ely Santacruz

I’m not feeling like I make a difference. I wish someone would give me a value added score to quantify why I matter.

This copy machine works great!
