It’s summer! I'll make it short and sweet so you can get back to a little rest, relaxation and recharging. Thank you so much for what you did this past year. The efforts you all put forth this year will never be forgotten. Only you all as dedicated classroom teachers, support staff and building leaders could have made a pandemic learning situation as successful as it was.
And now, our Teaching & Learning team is looking for a few of you amazing teachers to help us out. Each year in July and early August, we get tons of requests for PD sessions on a wide range of topics. We get more requests than we could possibly fill with our staff, so we reach out to our bullpen of educators for help. If you or someone you know might be interested in leading some of these sessions, please reach out to me.
What subject will I cover, you ask? Click here to access our existing PD and see what topics fit in your wheelhouse. If you have a topic not on our list you know you could deliver, we would be happy to have you offer it up as well. Teachers learn best from other teachers, and we want to help facilitate that learning.
So if this sounds interesting to you, let me know what subjects you could potentially help us with along with dates when you are available and the Teaching and Learning team will get back to you. Thanks again for all you do and enjoy your summer!
Before, during, and after the walkout, I talked to superintendents and school leaders about its legal and be, affected. It was fascinating to be in the school business during this time and to experience working with them through many issues none of us had yet encountered.
I refuse to be negative! It is so easy to fall into the rut of “Woe is me” syndrome.
