"Don't Find Fault, Find a Remedy." Henry Ford


Each day we are faced with problems at work and problems in our personal lives that need solutions. Our students are faced with problems every day as well. I am reminded of the need we all have for Carol Dweck's "Growth Mindset." Are we going to give up in the face of challenges? We can teach ourselves and teach our students to overcome challenges! ~Audrey

Many of you may be familiar with the digital library of LESSON PLANS on the website Smarter Balance. But if you are not, it is a great site for ALL subjects with lessons and print outs along with visual tools. It is free and easy to register at

You can customize what you teach so only your subject area will be highlighted on the menu to easily search for lessons by standards, concepts or content. Enjoy exploring!

And for more updated tools and tricks, please visit my padlet at:


The district is bringing Rick Wormeli on January 10 and 11. He will be speaking at the Rancho Pico MPR from 8am-3pm. This is a wonderful professional growth opportunity! There is no cost to attend, but teachers will not be paid. All attendees will receive a copy of Wormeli's book, "Fair Isn't Always Equal." Sign ups are first come first serve and open to junior high teachers only at first.
