You’ll remember in February I learned of their “Aim Higher” series around goal-setting and learned so much!  I’m excited to be on the front end of this one and get experience it throughout the week.  While it focuses on writing, much can be adapted to work for reading as well.  I know we are at the time of year where we are already thinking about next.  I hope you’ll join in the fun, gathering and sharing ideas to get yours built for this fall!
