Weekly C.U.B.

Central Update Bulletin - Issue 22

Focus Point: Central

LaDonna, our If, visited TCEA this year and shared this question from one of her sessions:

What if...

Every teacher tweeted one thing a day they did in their classroom to a school hashtag and then every teacher took 5 minutes a day to read each others' tweets?

What would that do for learning and school culture?

Please record your thoughts on the following form: http://goo.gl/forms/lycnMWyKUo

Everyone is asked to reply to this question by Wednesday, February 10th

Staff Meeting...Wednesday, February 10th.

We will conduct TELPAS training on Wednesday. Any teacher not in attendance will need to do a make up session at a later date. Flor will be our TELPAS coordinator and will answer any questions you may have during the meeting.
