Spotlight on Professional Learning

GH The Life of a Youtube

What awesome things are going on at Davis?

It's very fitting that as I write this Ms. Archer sends out an extraordinary animation. Great things are definitely happening at Davis. This week I would like to highlight a 5th grader who knows way more than I do about YouTube, several 5th graders who were given output options, and 4th graders who practiced being meteorologists. I am so proud that we are truly building better brains at Davis.


Teachers-I know you have come across great articles and different professional learning things. If it is amazing, send it to me so I can share it with the teachers. Thank you
