Finding the JOY in the Journey... each and every day at SJCA
This is the new look to my weekly staff communication that I am trying out. My goal with this format is to provide you with some additional links, articles, and resources that I hope will spark conversations, ideas, and improvements to the academic, behavioral, and spiritual growth of SJCA! Feel free to leave comments on this page.
I am very interested in helping each of you continue to build you own Professional Learning Network (PLN). I realize some of you already follow teacher blogs or you might utilize Twitter & Facebook for educational resources, many of you also use Teachers Pay Teachers, or Pinterest.. but I cannot put into words how helpful, supportive, and inspiring it is to "talk" to other professionals in your field. I hope you'll consider it. I would be happy to help you get started to building your own PLN.
I want to thank everyone for their participation in the Writers Workshop professional learning. I hope that the expectations document I created and shared this week was helpful. If you need support or need some additional clarifications please let me know. I have spoken to many of you and it seems that you are already seeing your students becoming better writers. Super exciting.
