Today I had the amazing opportunity to attend the Art's in Basic Curriculum Project's Peer-to-Peer Principal's Network where South Carolina's Superintendent of Education, Molly Spearman as well as Dr. Earl Franks from the National Association of Elementary School Principals spoke.

This past weekend I had the opportunity to attend the ballet Dracula: Ballet With a Bite at the Koger Center for the Performing Arts.

This production was so spooky but also kept the audience laughing at times. It was a wonderful night at the ballet and I can't wait to attend again next year.
