This blog represents my opinions and my opinions alone, and certainly doesn't represent the collective thoughts of any of the Boards or organizations that I serve on. Unfortunately I make all sorts of miistakes, I'm a picky eater, I can't sing and I just recently found out I have been spelling certain words in my vocabulary wrong my entire life. That being said, I still continue to muddle ever onward. Welcome.

  1. Off topic (but cute baby), I see in Ms. Fox's recent board update the district plans on embarking on a strategic planning process without the involvement of the teachers? While I have little sympathy for the teachers' antics, doesn't it seem a little silly to form a mission and vision statement for Monona Grove and not include teachers in the process? What's the point? Don't we need the people who are actually teaching our kids to buy into this? And if we don't need that, then why is it important to do it in the first place? I assume that consultant isn't doing this for free....

  2. While the MGEA has taken the position that the union will not participate, my understanding is that some teachers may participate individually.
