Your School Rocks...So Tell People! is yet another great read from DBC. Each chapter targets a different tool that we can use to communicate our story better in our schools whether it was through whole school communication or within our classrooms. There is something in there to empower anyone to make a difference. I also appreciated all the QR codes that linked to examples of the different types of communication mentioned. Thank you both Ryan and Eric for sharing all of these great examples to inspire others in this work!
