Find some humor with PLC Meetings!

Check out the all so funny Gerry Brooks as he describes PLCs. Now...we know that this is not the case at the absolute best school ever - Oak Ridge Elementary :0 - but I think you will enjoy the humor behind his message! In all seriousness - check out the Oak Ridge PLC Model/Cycle (below the video) that each grade level follows that keep our PLCs effective each week! You are a great team of professionals that collaborate and work diligently to Plan, Teach, and Evaluate! Way to Go, ORE!
