Summer Slice Vol. II
LA Staff News
Staff Spotlight: Mrs. Patterson
Mrs. Patterson is transitioning from an Academy teacher to be in charge of our Long Term Suspension program. She has a lot of ideas and experiences that have allowed her to create a vision for that space that will allow us to help students succeed.
Can anyone guess where she is now by this picture???????
New: Parent Education Newsletters
Ok, I'm a little too excited about this topic. While we often find ourselves in reactive mode, I am thrilled to be able to push out some parent education newsletters this year. Good stuff for all parents, especially me! Take a peak at one or two if you have time!
Project-Based Learning Professional Development
Every year the District brings in a trainer to help our teachers understand the project-based framework according to the Buck Institute (BIE.org). Many of the LA staff have been trained.
Project-based learning is not for the faint of heart. While we have our own style of PBL, if you want to grow in your ability to work with students in a PBL setting, then this is for you!
One of my favorite parts is that our trainer is from a school that is PBL AND RESTORATIVE. She has been a great resource for us and understands us!
Who is interested in attending this training? Please let me know if you want more info!
Interested in Summer PD ($18/hour)
