Re: Centers

    I just retired and at our end of the year party on Sat. my
    principal spoke and said how, when I interviewed there 10
    years ago, my philosophy was that kindergarten children
    should learn through play and that was when our district was
    going to standards-based kindergarten. Though he didn't say
    it, I know he thought that I was wrong or at least not up with
    the times because play isn't part of kindergarten. Later in the
    evening I went up to him and told him that I still think I am right
    and that if we had more play time in kindergarten the children
    would have better social skills and we would have fewer
    behavior problems. He just looked at me. SMH
