One Word for 2018
Welcome to 2018! We had the pleasure of spending another year together at CSE and I look forward to what 2018 brings.
My word for 2018 is TRUST. This is a big, not unique word, but I believe it best fits my 2018. Why?
1. I trust that the events of 2017, although hard, were part of the plan.
2. I trust that the events of 2018, are part of the plan.
3. I trust first with generous assumptions the people in my life.
4. I trust that we all have our students and colleagues in our best interest.
5. and... I trust the Vikings will not let me down.. again.
What's your ONE Word for 2018? Post it in the office with your provided post it note!
Best of luck on your 2018 RPS!
Have a great week and 2018!

Daily 5 Tip of the Week.. from the DAILY CAFE
Searching for a Community of Learners
By Gail Boushey
January 5, 2018
If you could change one thing in education, what would it be? Less emphasis on high-stakes testing? Smaller class sizes? Skills for all students to be able to discuss and disagree respectfully?
Lucy Calkins recently answered that question by saying, “I would create more time for teachers to study together, to be in a community of learning, reading, writing, and talking. We can no longer be a lone teacher who teaches in isolation. We need each other as we are making enormous differences for students.”*
Sound, research-based beliefs and the confidence to put them into practice have always been important to me. Throughout my career, I’ve sometimes felt like a “lone teacher” and other times found someone right down the hall to have collegial conversations with. Defining my beliefs, bouncing them off others, and hearing their thoughts pushes my thinking deeper and helps me shift my practice for the better. I wonder if this is what Lucy was talking about. We need to take our ideas and listen, discuss, share, invite, question, and refine our thinking and practice with each other for the betterment of our students.
It is easier now than it has ever been before. With social media, online courses, Google Hangouts, discussion boards, and websites, we have the ability to interact with someone near or far away immediately.
My most profound learnings have come from discourse with others. So, let’s do it. Let’s be in community together. We are starting a weekly Twitter chat and we hope you’ll join us as we deepen our thinking and refine our practice together. The first one will be January 10, 5:30 PST. Follow and participate with #DailyCAFE.
Let’s make Lucy’s dream a reality.
How Many Years have you worked at CSE?
What I love most about my job at CSE
What I love most about CSE is the caring and supportive environment provided for/by students, teachers, and parents. Whether it is academic or social in nature, the CSE community works hard to create success for all.
Favorite Children's Book.. and Why!
"Where the Red Fern Grows" This book was one of the first novels I ever read. I really enjoyed getting to know the characters in much greater depth than I had with previous books I had read.
Some of my hobbies include fishing, golfing, boating, and landscaping.
Interesting FACTS about ME
I completed my student teaching in the country of Luxembourg which is in Europe. My 6th grade class of 23 students had 9 different nationalities represented. During my time there, I also visited a total of 8 other countries.
