An Introduction to this blog

This blog is intended to be a forum for CNMI teachers to speak up about their concerns and thoughts. Any PSS teacher can post. Leave a comment here and I will add you as a contributor to this blog. You can also email ACT president Betty Miller at cnmiactnow@gmail.com with a request to be added as a contributor to this blog. Betty has been working tirelessly to unite teachers and give them the voice they should have. This is just another step in that process.

This blog will not be the official positions of ACT. It will be a place to debate and discuss issues on the island and in the schools that effect the teachers, staff and students here in the CNMI. I hope there will be many contributors, and please tell your friends and colleagues about this blog. Comments will be free and open. It is my hope that there will be a robust discussion on all education issues in the CNMI. You do not have to use your real name. Pseudonyms are common in the online world.

Not only do I hope to see opinions on CNMI educational issues, we can also help each other with tips on educational resources, classroom management techniques and areas of needed focus for our students.

This is not my blog. This is a blog for any and all CNMI teachers, and it will only be what you, the teachers, make of it. We've seen an explosion of blogging in the CNMI, and I feel this is a revolutionary technology for free expression and public debate. Enjoy it.
