The Coaches Corner
Week of October 26-30
Here's to a week full of treats!
I was so very excited to introduce the new format of our PLC's last week. I know it is yet another change, but I truly feel that it is going to help us gain more knowledge and insight into the philosophy of IB and how it connects to the initiative frameworks that we are implementing as a district. I have updated and added a few things to the PLC site, take a look and see if I need to change anything (there is a link to it below). I added a file cabinet to each group, you should be able to upload files to this... As with all new things... using the site will be a learning curve, let me know how I can assist you. We are all new to this!!!
Our PYP consultant visit last week was very interesting, I will be debriefing with administration early this week, sharing results with the leadership team later in the week, and share out with the rest of you next week.
