Request from Colleague:

Special Education Director’s Blog:
With much pressure, I have created a Special Education Director Blog.  My primary goal of this blog is to support the hard work of the special education directors and educators who have dedicated their lives to support students with disabilities. It will be a venue to post my “musing” in a format that allows for your feedback, stories, etc.  I look forward to hearing from you on the blog! 

The blog is on the Region 4 website at:

Happy Thanksgiving:
As we approach Thanksgiving, I found the following quote that I would like to share:


When we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that is present…we experience heaven on earth.  —Sarah Breathnach

I wish for you a blessed Thanksgiving where you can spend time with your loved ones (and the interesting people they bring with them ).  Take time to express gratitude for all your blessings!  The students in Region 4 are blessed to have you on their team! --Ginger
