Coordinators Newsletter October 2016


COORDINATORS NEWSLETTER  ●  OCTOBER 2016

 

 

Hello Coordinators! Welcome to our coordinator monthly newsletter. We all know that at times we feel (or have felt) like an island in our work and in our schools. One of our goals with the Coordinator’s Network is to build a sense of community amongst coordinators where we can share best practices and get to know others who do the same work we do.  Through use of the website, a monthly newsletter, and a few other ideas we are working on we hope we can reach out and connect with coordinators across the county. We look forward to hearing and getting to know more of you! Happy Fall!

Liz Thacker – Co-chair for the Coordinator’s Network
