A6. Growth #OneWord2020 #catholicedchatA5. Trust. That one word has to be present in a group to move forward. In 2020? Relationship building. #catholicedchatA4.2. Personal? Read more books, get back to active lifestyle #catholicedchatA4. Implement coaching model and keep developing collaborative and teacher led professional development. #catholicedchatA2. Maureen, joining late from Omaha. This year? Equipping more classrooms with F and P reading materials. #catholicedchat
