This email is going out a little bit later than planned today since I couldn't get home last night due to the snowstorm. Another adventure that I do not describe in a blog post but certainly could. The white out conditions caused me to be lost for moments while driving in a place I am very familiar with, what a strange feeling! The snow this morning is beautiful "stuck" to everything in the way of it falling to the ground. 

PLEASE CONSIDER PARTICIPATING IN THIS OPPORTUNITY... Applications for Regional Assessment Leaders are being accepted until April 15th. The details are in the blog post called http://meartsed.wordpress.com/2011/03/16/youre-invited-to-participate/ The Maine Arts Education Assessment wiki is located at http://maineartsassessment.pbworks.com/w/page/28365527/Maine-Arts-Assessment Please be sure and email me if you have any questions!
