DC Fall Teacher Expo Review

I am extremely proud and grateful for the amazing work and participation that went into our Fall Teacher Expo on September 28th. Having time for teachers to learn from and share with other teachers is critical. Attached you will find all of the presentations from our Day of Sharing. The file was huge so it has been separated into two files. Please share these documents with your teachers. Should you wish to have a specific presentation in its original format please email Chris Collier with the presentations title.

Several of you have asked for info on the November PD date. As of today this is a site day for you to decide. It is my understanding that a few small groups (example speech teachers) might have an individual training on this day. Thanks again to Parkview for hosting and to all for supporting our Fall PD Expo.

Fall: A Time for Motivation & Focus...

As we approach Fall Break I feel the need to pause and tell each of you, THANK YOU! You are amazing individuals who work under often strenuous conditions, in environments that push you both emotionally and physically. I am educated daily by the events which take place in our schools. Through it all each of you somehow remain focused on KIDS and produce awesome outcomes, which too many are miracles. I pray for each of you daily and hope that you understand just how grateful I am to be on this path with you. Please extend my gratitude and appreciation on to your staff.
