In this pilot episode of a new series that I created that stemmed from the COVID-19 "pandemic," I explain how to teach "blogging." My educational series teaches students how to communicate effectively on the web, and teaches teachers how to foster those skills through the use of digital literacy skills.
Alongside my colleagues Gail Lavielle, Themis Klarides and many other prominent state political figures, we led the statewide reform movement against school regionalization. Before the anticipated hearing at the state capitol in March 2019, the Senate and House Republicans gave a press conference that was broadcasted on all the major cable television channels. I spoke at the press conference. The reform movement picked up quickly, and was covered by all state news outlets and newspapers. It was the hottest topic of the year in state politics.
I was able to land quotes and features in WFBS Eyewitness News, Good Morning Wilton, Yankee Institute, The News-Times, Republican American, and the Hartford Courant. My op-ed piece on this effort was also published in the Connecticut Mirror. I was proud to be one of the key leaders in this fight that led to the bill dying inside the Capitol. I am proud of the friendships that I made along the process.
