cation director. Teachers have to get permission to attend short professional development conferences during the school year, she said.

Fischbeck said. “We’ll try to work with them.”
Waldrip said Fischbeck and I laag recover a lot of money in their role.
Fischbeck, he said, can often collect with just a phone call based on his reputation and standing in the community.
