Happy Fall.  As part of the state's Perkins leadership team I get to see many, many stellar activities at the local level that benefit career and technical education students and educational professionals. I miss teaching!  That was my entry-level into the "business" of education.   I am a strong advocate of career and technical education as a solution to our economic recovery.  You should talk to me about what you see as a BOLD or innovative approach to the integration of education and workforce development; teacher licensure challenges; disparities in the technologies serving our students; and creative recipes for fall stews.  Currently I am working to support kids with housing and food insecurities. " If we don't stand up for children, then we don't stand for much"- Marian Wright Edelman.   Happy to talk with you about that as well.
