Schalm Shark News
Upcoming information: February
I would like to thank you for ALL you do every-day.
Some things I would like to make a priority when we get some "Schalm" time at a staff meeting:
- Committee meetings/updates (Green School-new recycling project, PBIS-went to a few conferences and can begin to plan to update our current program for the upcoming year, Social Committe-baby shower/lounge, School Improvement-we are currently working on it; our vision)
- I would also like to take time together to share out some ideas on your current professional growth goals-many teachers have similar goals and I think it would be beneficial to share out what is working for you in hopes that we can expand our thinking, gain more ideas and/or try new things.
- Another topic I would like to discuss is Teacher of the Year: I believe if we take time to look at the positive components of this program; that we will be a group of people who encourage one another and continue to lift each other up, when many things around us in the education community are trying to bring us down.
I truly believe that EACH person in our building has their own special gifts and talents and can relate to a unique group of students. I also believe our differences are our strengths as a whole.
Some interesting articles-ideas
