To All the Teachers!
Thank you for taking the time to work with that one student.
Thank you for spending late nights at home planning that lesson.
Thank you for spending your Friday night supporting students at the games they play or performances they give.
Thank you for staying late to enter grades and coming early to attend faculty meetings.
Thank you for spending your money to ensure your students have the materials they need or food to eat.
Thank you for not giving up when it seems like nothing will change or get better.
And, thank you for being professional when some do not treat you as though you are.
Social Studies Haiku Playground with Courtney and Melissa
Courtney and Melissa have attended approximately 15 hours of training on different applications of Haiku and Chromebooks in the classroom and would like to help you incorporate these ideas into your lessons. We have ideas to make assessment and grading easier, as well as methods to increase student engagement. Come and check it out. Space is limited so register early! Just go to My Learning Plan, log-in, and search the calendar for June 15th and "Social Studies Haiku Playground".

For all the moms out there, have a great Mother's Day! The hard work of teachers pales in comparison to the hard work of moms! (Dads too, although mine got off a little easy.) Take care and see you next week.
