Peer Observations

At Columbian we all want to get better at our profession. We grow by learning from others. There are so many great things happening in our classrooms. Schedule to visit a classroom on the Google Doc. This is a great week of learning!

PD Schedule - October 3rd

7:30-9:00 Active Shooter Training at R9 Auditorium

9:00-11:00 SLOs & PDP on you own

11:00-12:00 Lunch on your own

12:00-3:15 BIST Training/ BLIP

** We will practice our Active Shooter Training at Columbian sometime during the day whenever the Police Department is available. We have not been given a specific time.

A Bit about BIST

My "snowball theory" on behavior - a student's behavior is either getting better or it's getting worse. Everyday the snowball grows. Today, he stayed out of trouble for 2 hours. Tomorrow we'll try for three hours. Building little by little. You have to pay attention everyday or BAM! you get hit in the face with a snowball when you're not watching.

Expectational Teachers

-Never have it all figured out and they don't want to.

-The challenge is the reason they are teachers.

-They look for ways to get better and learn new things.

-They ask better questions and listen to others because they want to know more.
