  1. I look forward to meeting PTACHC President Christina Delmont-Small and Howard County Moms & Dads. Christina certainly did an amazing job pulling this event together. Thank you.

    If those who can’t be at the event have questions you would like me to ask the panelists on your behalf I will do my best to include them in the conversation. We will be discussing student privacy nationally as well as locally.

    I am honored to be speaking at this event & can’t wait to hear from US ED….… and hopefully get some answers to your questions.
