•How effective were your actions in helping you meet your goals?
I am continuing moving forward on communicating with everyone more effectively by using my webpage on the school site. I am updating the calendar on my page. I am also using the calendar on my outlook (school e-mail) I am keeping track of meetings (and we know how meetings teachers have) and sending invites to the people who need to attend the meetings.

What I will have to do is look into the ANGEL software the county has…. I was told there is blogging capability there, but I have not seen any application for it. In fact, I have found no communicating ability with students or parents using ANGEL. The search continues…
