Director of Human Capital
Extension 1077 in Hippo Nation connects you directly to me!

Here is my bio!
*Your passion, attitude, and touch change eternity.*
What is "Human Capital?"
What is a "Courant?"
Courant also means running according to Merriam-Webster Dictionary. Hippos run. We run to ensure that our students are getting the very best that they deserve and need. We run to ensure that the spirit of the River Horse never dies. If you didn't know, River Horse means Hippo; It is the literal English translation of the Greek word Hippopotamus!
Our Courant will be composed of topics that relate to career pathways, growing us as individuals, and other topics that relate to the human capital component of our work.
Something that can help - An Emotional Planner
Although the below example is for a student, it's applicable for us.
Activity: Planning in person and virtual instruction
Emotion: Frustration, nervous, anxiety, scared
Strategy: set my calendar and ensure I section time for planning, ask to observe another teacher, pair up with another teacher at another campus to work on it together, eat well
