Well, NASJE Colleagues, I hadn’t exactly planned to write another “President’s Message,” but then again, I hadn’t planned on Hurricane Irma or any of the frantic activity that occurred as that storm barreled towards the east coast with Charleston in…
The 2017 NASJE Annual Conference has been rescheduled for December 3-6, 2017. We are fortunate to have been offered alternate dates at the same hotel after the September conference dates became unworkable due to Hurricane Irma. We are grateful to the staff at the Francis Marion hotel who worked hard to accommodate us and ensure a positive outcome for all concerned despite the storm.
In a kind of cinematic alchemy, Moonlight makes viewers’ hearts beat right along with the protagonist’s in a world that is both intrinsically American and foreign to many. The movie drops us deeply into three stages of Chiron’s life—as a ten year old trying to outrun bullies in his impoverished Miami neighborhood, as an adolescent quivering at the possibility of a first kiss, and as a hyper-muscled, achingly lonely adult.

My belief has always been that great teachers can teach anybody. The student’s age does not matter. My first disclaimer: I do not consider myself a great teacher. I have, however, found success as a teacher and coach. In my opinion, certificates and degrees have never determined the efficacy of a teacher. I have seen many teachers with Ph.Ds. who fail to connect with learners. As Jack Anderson Pidgeon, the headmaster of the private Kiski School in Saltsburg noted , “Teaching must flow from within. Teaching is an art.”
The NASJE Membership Committee is pleased to introduce one of NASJE’s newest members: Alan Sparrow! Alan hails from the great state of Arizona, where he is an Education Specialist in the Education Technologies Unit. He was a good sport, and gamely answered some of the committee’s “Get-To-Know-You” questions.
