I was walking through Target with my son and we saw the school supplies all being set out. The summer items were already dwindling and being replaced by crayons, markers, and notebooks. It’s July. Summers seem to be shorter and...
After the year 2020 brought us I knew the 2020-2021 school year would be like no other we had faced in the education field. As a teacher-librarian, I am part of the leadership committee at my school, so I...
