Fundamental Five

Self-Reflection: Think for a moment about something at which you'd consider yourself to be very good, maybe even an expert. If you're like the rest of us, you've developed this expertise over time; you weren't always good at it. So how did you develop this skill? What were some of the behaviors you employed? How did you learn new and different strategies to refine your capabilities? As you grew in proficiency, what changed? Growth, improvement, progress and development don't just happen overnight, and they typically don't happen accidentally. They're a result of intentionality, planning, conscious effort, and thought. You had to think about it- a lot, probably to get good at it. As we end the year, take time to self reflect on what new strategies you used to meet the needs of your students. We will be discussing these at your summative. I am proud of the work you do every day with kids that need you the most. Teaching is a super power!

Teacher Appreciation Week- Jeans all Week! Thanks for the endless hours you put in so that our students have what they need. Students light up when they see your faces, and your loving touch is what our kids will remember years from now when they look back on their time in elementary. This is one awesome Cool Cat family! We are looking forward to a great week of surprises for you!
