Today, many teacher bloggers are going silent as a way to honor the memories of those lost in Friday’s tragedy. I am joining them.
On Tuesday, December 18th, there will be a blogger day of silence. We will post the button and that’s it. Please try to not post anything else that day if possible.We are also raising money that will go to an organization in the memory of this tragedy. The organization is called The Newtown Family Youth and Family Services.Here is the official description of the support service we are donating to:“Newtown Youth and Family Services, Inc. is a licensed, non-profit, mental health clinicand youth services bureau dedicated to helping children and families achieve theirhighest potential.
