A grateful heart

My heart is grateful for..

...a terrific place at which to come back to work, and wonderful people to work alongside!

Data practices that engage students....

I think we primarily use the "mastery approach" they discuss in our work with students, but read this article to see how your classroom practices may impact students and their view of their performance:

Tomorrow

Tomorrow is designated as a work day. Heidi does need to meet with teams about RTI issues, and it would be wise to use some of the day for team planning. If you spend your afternoon planning together, that's a chunk of time you have uninterrupted AND you don't have to plan for a sub in order for it to happen!


Plan to be there from 8-4 with lunch on your own...a typical professional day schedule.
