Cordelia Hills Staff Update
Glows and Grows
Grow: With instruction (and not intervention) in mind, what is one area that you think you could target for small group instruction?
With that in mind, please remember we need all teachers on deck. That means we are interacting with students, participating, supervising, etc. I know it is a great time to chat with your colleagues, especially the ones you don't see as often, but we really need all of the help we can get in making it the best possible time possible.
Thanks so much for your help!
