Leadership Meeting

In an effort to have more professional learning time, there is information in Canvas that we will not go over during our meeting. There will be a time for you to ask questions, however, we ask that you review the information prior to our meeting. The module and documents have been posted in Canvas.

School Visits

I enjoyed two school community visits and two school visits for teacher observations! Thank you to Dr. Barnes and Mr. KIrrell for hosting our first two community visits.


Thank you to Dr. Dickson for hosting the first teacher observation visits. I enjoyed learning about Mesopotamia in social studies which included a flocabulary rap! I also observed an Advanced Science lab where students were learning about the difference between weight and mass.


Thank you to Dr. Leonard for hosting my first high school visit. I was amazed by his choral program! I also enjoyed watching student presentations in English, ROTC during their first inspection day, and the 9th grade South Pointe orientation class.
