Dear FAE listserve members,
This note is to check that this actually works! and to introduce myself. I am
the new chair of the SIG and looking forward to meeting and talking with our
members through this new service.
As the school year ends I am finishing up my work with a grant from the
Rockefeller foundation to work with a school district and a university
collaborative effort to improve professional develoment policy and practice. We
funded 7 pilot sites to school and community groups to learn about new, more
effective ways to help parents, teachers, administarators---eg "the village" to
help children be successful in school. It was a new area of work for me and
very interesting. I'd be happy to talk more with anyone with similar interests.
Soon I will be leaving on summer vacation!~ We are fortunate to be going to
Egypt this year so I am very excited about this opportunity.
Well, back to work--Please do feel free to respond to this message or start your
