Staff Get Together
Please take a moment to film your introduction using Flipgrid. This is a great way for our students to see their teachers and learn a little bit about them before Meet the Teacher.

August Professional Development
CTE for 2018-2019
In order to earn your CTE day for next year, please be sure you read below.
All grades, except 2nd, will be reading Kids Deserve It. Please read this book PRIOR to your return in August. We will hear Adam Welcome in August, and your first reflection on the book will be due in September. The questions will be sent through Google Classroom.
The second-grade team will be reading Blended Learning in Action. If you would like to choose this book instead of Kids Deserve It, you are welcome to do so. Teachers reading this book will have questions on Google classroom related to this book.
Links to both books are below:
Both books are available electronically for a few less dollars than the paperback editions. I do have a few copies of Kids Deserve It that may be borrowed--first come, first serve.
These will be easy, but enjoyable reads for everyone! The reflection questions will give everyone a chance to interact and share their learning. The best part of this is that you can do this from home, and we do not have to find a date when everyone can attend.
CTE will be your 3 hours of the CFISD Compliance Training completed off contract, and participating in 4 additional hours for back-to-school events, such as Meet the Teacher (2 events--kindergarten and 1st-5th).
