The Curriculum Corner: What to expect from a PDS partnership...

Some of you are probably wondering...what does being a PDS mean? What will we have to do? Will it be a lot of work? These are all valid questions and we will be answering them all on Monday; however, here is what you can expect: This partnership will give us access to resources through the University. We will have "first dibs" on student teachers (via a building interview committee), and have professors/doctoral students as coaches throughout the building. Our site committee will work with administration and the University to develop PD & even course offerings! In short we will be taking our relationship with Rowan to new heights! Have a great weekend & be ready to cast your vote on Monday!

News & Notes

  • DOMAIN 4: My goal is to have all D4 evaluations completed by the end of May so that we can focus on PDP's & SGO's in June. If we haven't met to review & score Domain 4, please reach out to Joan to schedule a time for us to meet.
  • Bullock Garden Updates: If you are interested in joining the Bullock Green Team, we will meet on Thursday, May 19th after school in room D2 (Tees/Harris). The Bullock Garden fundraiser will continue through May 27th.
  • Monday is the BIG DAY! Can't wait to have the Rowan University staff here! See below for a sneak preview & if you have any questions let me know!
