High School Column: Life changes

For some people, change isn't easy. It is something that doesn't resonate well with them. Maybe it makes them a little anxious. Perhaps they know the outcome could be phenomenal, but they're terrified to step out of their comfort zone and welcome such differences with open arms. Maybe change doesn't bother them, though. It could thrill them, spinning their lives around in the best way possible. It could be viewed as an adventure or an opportunity, a way to branch out and become someone new.

Column: Change is good; you go first

As I craft my first article as the new Superintendent of the Kershaw County School District (KCSD), replacing someone who dedicated 11 years to our schools, I could think of no better way to begin than by starting with the subject of change. When you think about it, no one really enjoys change, but in the world of education, change is inevitable and fast moving. In many of our school districts across the country, the use of technology is one example of this paradigm shift in the classroom. The decreased time for feedback, increased collaboration and increased student engagement are ...
