for next year.
Logan’s teachers have approved a new bell shedule for next year, which provides for an earlier start time, and a weekly voluntary collaboration period for teachers which will shorten the student day on Wednesdays.
According to Paul Bisbiglia, the Logan teacher who this year chairs the Logan Site-Based Decision Making committee, which spearheaded the election, almost 95 percent of teachers, or 162 of 171 Logan teachers, voted on the issue, with 127 voting yes and 35 casting no. Yes votes were cast by almost 79 percent , according to Bisbiglia.

Annie Sullivan, or Johanna Mansfield Sullivan Macy, (April 14, 1866 – October 20, 1936) was a teacher best known as the tutor of Helen Keller.
Anne Sullivan was born in Feeding Hills, Massachusetts. Her parents, Thomas Sullivan and Alice Clohessy, were poor Irish farmers who left Ireland in 1847 because of the Irish Potato Famine. Sullivan’s father was an alcoholic and sometimes abused her, but he also passed on to her Irish tradition and folklore. Her mother, suffering from tuberculosis, died when she was eight, and when she was ten, she had to move in with a relative. Later her relatives left her and her brother at the Massachusetts State Infirmary in Tewksbury. Sullivan spent all her time with her younger, crippled brother (who, like his mother, suffered from tuberculosis) in hopes that they would never be separated; however, Jimmie soon died in the infirmary.
Read The Story of my life; with her letters (1887-1901) and a supplementary account of her education, including passages from the reports and letters of her teacher, Anne Mansfield Sullivan, by John Albert Macy, free from Project Gutenberg.
