I've been doing this work for a pretty long time. The coming school year will be my 38th, which probably qualifies me for "dinosaur status." A lot has changed in education since I walked into my first classroom in 1975. One of the most significant areas of change has been the way in which schools and school districts interact and communicate with families and the general public.
