Congratulations to all campuses and their campus Teachers of the Year (TOYs)

Our Elementary and Secondary Teacher of the Year Judging Committees have met and reviewed all campus entries and selected the finalists. Since all of our campus TOYs truly represent the best in teaching, it is always difficult for the judges to narrow it down to our finalists.

Myla Razon-Sacayanan, Colony Meadows Elementary

Breana Fausett, Dulles Elementary

Our Habit for the month of February is Synergize!


To put it simply, synergy means "two heads are better than one." Synergize is the habit of creative cooperation. It is teamwork, open-mindedness, and the adventure of finding new solutions to old problems. But it doesn't just happen on its own. It's a process, and through that process, people bring all their personal experience and expertise to the table. Together, they can produce far better results that they could individually. Synergy lets us discover jointly things we are much less likely to discover by ourselves. It is the idea that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. One plus one equals three, or six, or sixty--you name it.

When people begin to interact together genuinely, and they're open to each other's influence, they begin to gain new insight. The capability of inventing new approaches is increased exponentially because of differences.

Valuing differences is what really drives synergy. Do you truly value the mental, emotional, and psychological differences among people? Or do you wish everyone would just agree with you so you could all get along? Many people mistake uniformity for unity; sameness for oneness. One word--boring! Differences should be seen as strengths, not weaknesses. They add zest to life.
