Also, this past week our charter school district, Advance Baton Rouge, was chosen in partnership with National Institute for Excellence in Teacher for a $13.3 million Teacher Incentive Fund grant. The money will be used to further implement the Teacher Advancement Program in our five schools. This grant is a tremendous step in the direction of paying teachers for expertise. The state also won a large TIF grant that will be shared with many districts including Ascension. I am so happy for my teachers friends!
The world of teaching is changing. I am sure some changes will not be pleasant, but I also know without change
