Staying Connected, Collaborative, and Committed


Big image


As I was reading from Nancy Tillman's book, The Crown on Your Head, to my son last night I was reminded of each of YOU. Each one of you is special and different in your own beautiful way, by design. This week celebrate each other by letting your kids and peers know how truly special they are and how we couldn't make ALL this work without EACH OTHER! #Christieconnects to share your keen observations.

Have a great week.

Loose/Tight Document

As we move forward in PLCs it's important that we get clear on what's "loose" and what's "tight" in our collaborative efforts. For the month of NOVEMBER we will be taking a look at the document below...adding to it and taking away. Our ILT has started it and will continue adding as the month progresses. We want you guys to do the same...
