Love this. Thanks for your generosity in sharing all of this (and glad to know I'm not the only one struggling to find a purpose for notes and restacks!)

Thank you for the mention. People like us, teachers in the schools in the Bad Neighborhood need to keep pressing and speaking up. What people are told vs. what really is going on in 'school' these days must be talked about.

I had to laugh when you wrote that you DON'T want your students seeing you here! lol
