What I Learned @ teachSDA This Weekend

What I Learned From #teachSDA This Weekend:

We had a great topic this week on Leadership & the Obligation to Lead!  Too often we fall into the trap of believing that leadership is a title.  There is still time to add your thoughts to this topic at #teachSDA on twitter or www.teachSDA.org.

Now here are some articles from this weekend:
