Teacher Edition for Week of September 7-11

Build Relationships ~ Inspire Learners ~ Expect Success ~ Unlock Gifts

What an amazing day we had together in PLCs! I am so proud of how committed each team is to staying focused on what is best for our kids. We are going to accomplish amazing things together this year.

One statement from our PLC article has stuck with me throughout this entire day together and it is that "good is the enemy of great". The author goes onto explain that an organization that is simply "good" can cause complacency and hinder the pursuit of the continuous improvement it takes to be great . Let's not let "good" be our enemy. Instead, let's make this the year we turn "good" into "great".


Enjoy your day off! You deserve it!

Happy Birthday and welcome back, Katie Mason!
