Points of Pride

Instructional Focus:

Thank you all for handling most issues in your classroom this week so that I could focus on learning at the PLC conference. I learned SOOOOO much and really came away inspired.

My biggest take away from the conference was a a need to analyze our school's mission and vision. This will provide a baseline to make future decisions and allow for a more "laser-like" focus in our work. I am not trying to change the mission, we can keep it the same, but it's worth discussing and ensuring that everyone is "all in" in working towards a common goal.

The following TED Talk was mentioned at the PLC conference several times, and has caused me to do a lot of reflection. While I know the aforementioned video is addressing the business world, I think there are parts that are relevant to education. Check it out, and email me your reflections by Friday for a chance to win a $50 Barnes and Noble gift card.
