Guardian of the Galaxy!

Coach Montoya! Thank you for delivering the package to first grade!


Remember to acknowledge each other for acts of kindness and going above and beyond on our Guardian of the Galaxy bulletin board by the mailboxes.

"I Will"

Each day the students should demonstrate the "I will" of the lesson to you. This formative assessment should guide your next steps in the lesson- whether you need to speed up or slow down. The "I will" cannot be ignored. Each student should be accountable for his/her learning that day.

Will vs. Skill: Where are you?

It's a great time to revisit your will vs. your skill. Have you changed this semester?

High will/low skill: Enthusiastic, idealistic, willing to learn: seeks feedback and explores new strategies and ideas, but implementation is inconsistent and ineffective


Low will/low skill: Discouraged, not invested, "retired on the job", does not volunteer or contribute, passive, tries to stay beneath the radar


High will/ high skill: Motivated, skillful, easily identifies and implements appropriate strategies, explores new ideas, seeks feedback, refines practices, takes on challenges


Low will/high skill: Skillful but disinterested, "seen it all" unreceptive to feedback, resists efforts to try new approaches, sabotages efforts


Remember, having high will but low skill is so much more effective than low will and high skill. Be reflective if you have fallen into low will. What got you there? How will you move out of low will so that you don't negatively impact your team and students?
