The Weekly Dragon Newsletter

The Week of December 7th

The Seagoville Feeder Pattern seeks to become the number one feeder pattern in the district. To achieve this, our principals work collaboratively in an effort to plan effective professional development for teachers, faculty and staff. Administrators calibrate during classroom observations to provide teachers with targeted and specific feedback to improve the quality of instruction in order to increase student achievement. Additionally, our principals lead professional learning communities to assist teachers with data driven instructional decisions, lesson plan development, the creation of aligned curriculum guides, and rigorous six week common assessments. All of these instructional initiatives will provide support for increasing the academic growth and development of the schools in the Seagoville Feeder Pattern.

TEI: Distinguished Teacher Review

What is a Distinguished Teacher?

A Distinguished teacher is one who earns an effectiveness level of Proficient II or higher. These teachers achieve high scores in teacher performance, student achievement, and student perceptions (if applicable). Distinguished teachers also meet additional performance criteria assessed through a central review process called the Distinguished Teacher Review.


In addition to high evaluation scores, Distinguished teachers will show evidence of the following:

  1. Quality of Instruction and Performance
  2. Leadership
  3. Lifelong Learning
  4. Contributions to the Profession


What do Distinguished teachers look like?

Here are examples of applications submitted by teachers undergoing the 2015 Distinguished Teacher Review.


December 7
DTR portal will open for Wave 2 DTR-eligible teachers.

December 15
SLO Goal-Accomplishment submitted (one semester course only)

Literacy Cadre

The next round of PD for K-2 reading teachers will be December 15 and 16. Please remind teachers who have been in attendance to arrive on time and ready for learning.


Professional Development for 3-5 grade reading cadre members will be on January 4 from 2-5 at the Buckner Building. This is a district-wide professional day so you will need to work your agendas so that your cadre members can attend this training.


As a reminder, your cadre team should spend the next six weeks implementing what was learned during the last training on Generating Text Dependent Questions through content PLCs and classroom observations to look for implementation.

Middle School Professional Development

To address the instructional needs that have been identified as deficiencies by the administrators in the middle schools, we have responded with a series of sessions for the 7th grade writing teachers. Academic Facilitators will provide professional development on the following dates and times for the 7th grade ELA teachers:
