Tami Novak | M A R 1 2 I agree that the implementation, testing, and professional development need to be addressed, but I am excited about the CCSS. It must depend on expectations of your district, but I am now much more free to use my professional knowledge than I was with NCLB. I am not tied to a scripted adoption. I definitely feel like I have more freedom than before. I'm hopeful! @susanoha | M A R 1 3 I'd put generous spirit, flexibility and sense of humor HIGH on my list of teacher qualifications. @jeff_freitas | M A R 6 #VergaraTrial is about billionaires and corporations attacking teachers and unions. @EricHeins | M A R 9 @MichelleRhee and her billionaire backers need to understand that #publiceducation is not for sale. @xianb8 Ravitch: Tests should be used to support student learning, not sort, judge, punish. #CTATopTweet Who is Dependent on Welfare?
