Northern Region Teacher Shout Out
Northern Region Teachers of the Week: Lacy Jones & Sarah Riley
Team-Teaching Gone Right!
"I think one of the biggest benefits from this model is that we make each other better… She will do something in class it will spark an idea for me to use. It has been wonderful! We are also much closer since we are together every day. We are not just coworkers but friends now. I think it is very helpful for our students as well. They have a set routine that is used daily… they like routine! " - Lacy Jones
Making It Meaningful
The students get to decide how what they've learned is meaningful.
Students take a quick SI break in the middle of class.
Predicting is an important skill that students will use in their daily lives.

Summer Shelton is Not Ignoring You
So ... it turns out that my cellular provider, who shall remain nameless, had my voicemails being sent to another person's phone from January 24, 2015 up until last week! If you left a message for me during that time, I did not receive it. The error has now been fixed, and I look forward to you waiting for the beep. :)
