The Learning Edge

PD in your PJ's

Welcome to a great year!

I would like to welcome you all back to 2019-20 school year! Whether this is your first, or 25th (like mine), it is such an exciting time. The freshness of a new school year is exhilarating, from the new pens, to the new lesson planners, to the new faces, to the limitless possibilities all of which make this a profession like no other! Where else do you get a fresh start every year?

To add to that excitement I live with an incoming 1st and 4th grader, who are also anxiously waiting to find out who their teachers will be, backpack and lunchbox ready to go! Their biggest fear after that is “what if they don’t like me?” While my biggest fear is always what if they struggle or aren’t successful, will I be present enough (all of our lives are always so busy) to see the warning signs? But before I get lost going down that rabbit hole, I remind myself that this is a fresh start and we can make it anything we want to! And that’s the way we are going to look at it.

At the beginning of every month I will be sending out a monthly newsletter to let you know about upcoming assessment dates, to share articles and videos about best practices, as well as other tidbits, to help keep you ahead of the game! And hey, you can even watch or listen in your PJ's! If there is anything special that you would like to see just let me know!

As always, if there is anything you need please, let me know. I am an email or phone call away!

Wishing you all the best as you start your new year! Shelley
