As an administrator and educator, one word that has been stated over and over by me as changes have continually met us during this pandemic is “PIVOT.” As I watched the episode of “Friends” in early July, it hit me, that while they were trying to move the couch and were yelling “PIVOT” there wasContinue reading “Space to PIVOT”
