Thank you for Being a part of Creating the Future!

What a great week of learning last week in EMS ISD we had as leaders completed Instructional Rounds, worked with consultants on campuses to help teachers better understand and create Quad D lessons, and were trained by Ruben Perez in working with children from generational poverty. It was definitely a busy week, and a week where you are working to create a better, more successful future for our students of EMS ISD. This weeks holds many opportunities as well as the RISE presentations as well as ALI II and III begin.

Ruben Perez will be back for the November training "Boys in Crisis." Your APs and 2 AP invited teachers from your campus will be able to attend the training. I will pay for one of the teachers for each selected by an AP. The campus will cover the cost of the other teacher/s.

Below you will see an interesting opportunity to hear Diane Ravitch in person at TCU for no charge! This is on Thursday, October 15 at 7 pm. I hope some of you will be able to attend the event.

Also, I have attached some excellent readings about using data, helping the ELL reader as well as the rising homeless population and how to meet their needs.

May your week be full of opportunities to shine!

Dr. P
