A Thoughtful Tip
By Dr. Jim Capolupo
Make sure you are taking care of yourself. Eat healthy (at least once in a while). Get some regular exercise. Make sure you are getting enough sleep. Also, do some fun things on the weekends not related to your job. All in all, you will be a better superintendent if you follow all of the above.

FROM BLOGGER LEE JENKINS
1/3 OF EVERY SCHOOL YEAR IS WASTED.
Surveys from over 3000 teachers, from multiple states, document that teachers spend 1/3 of every school year teaching students content they should already know. Why? We unintentionally give students “Permission to Forget” through the weekly spelling (and later on – chapter) tests. First graders learn in the first month they don’t need those words anymore. In your school district it will be possible to send students onto middle school who have never learned how to cram/get a grade/forget. They will continue their kindergarten attitude that learning and remembering go together. For $8 you can purchase “Let’s Fix Spelling” at www.LtoJConsulting.com ; 83 pages as PDF to print or read.
