I’m so grateful for the opportunities to continue to learn and surround myself with others who also strive to be the best. I was in Sacramento last week for the 2017 – 2018 CAASPP Institute, with other trainers, presenters, support staff, organizational gurus and all around exceptional educators. Being around all of these people inspires me to always learn more and be open to constructive, actionable feedback. This work that we do, we do collaboratively, remotely and with joy. Our end goal is always about how to support teaching and learning, not the assessment scores. Thank you to all of you for all that you do, your expertise and your continued passion for our students of California!
