Edgerton Weekly #32

Equity In All We Do-Culturally Responsive and Competent Teaching
On Monday we learned about equitable school-family partnerships. Thank you to Laura, Angela and Lisa for leading the professional development. At the close of our session, we asked each staff member to write down two things you were planning to think more about or shift in your practice. This is just a reminder to process about that and also encouragement to make shifts that would strengthen family partnerships. Also, if there is something you would like the E-Team or the Site Improvement Team to discuss more please let me know.
Teacher Appreciation Week-If the world could see educators through my eyes...
This week is Teacher Appreciation week but please know that I appreciate you always. I'm lucky to be a part of this staff. I also left a small "thank you" in your mailboxes in honor of Teacher Appreciation Week.
