RES Staff Update

December 10-14, 2018

Bragging on Our Colleagues

Part of the final assignment is the option of bragging on fellow colleagues who have either demonstrated a "Kids Deserve It" attitude or who have been role models for blended learning. I will continue to post these after this week, so please feel free to send in more positive notes.

Christi Moran has the students use technology in many ways in her class. She is always praising her students for the progress they have made- big or small. She is always willing to show or help others with technology activities if they ask.


Our next e-track begins on Wednesday, January 16. I will send everyone a link to complete a slide for your course offering. These will be due by December 18. The students will sign up for their selections the week we return from the break. If you will need materials for your course, please let me know by emailing me (and copying Sally). Please include the list of materials and the cost. Do not purchase anything before getting approval. We will decide if it is more efficient for you to purchase the items on your own, or if we need to purchase the items. Our students had so many great choices last time. Thank you for your time and effort to make this a special time for them.

Reminders for This Week

Keep up the great job hunting down Rob! There is still plenty of time for all teams to be contenders in this friendly competition. Extra points will be awarded if your entire team is in the picture.
