Flaa's Monday Memo

April 23, 2018

Just to Recap!

I feel last week we began to see positive changes with our students. We heard some very poised and powerful messages from several members of our student body. Please continue to encourage kindness in your classrooms. Continue building relationships with your students and affirm their progress.


We ended the weekend with a very successful PROM! Thank you to all that chaperoned. It was a long night but a memorable one...#electricslide #Hahnmadesnapchat #toomuchbass #floorwasshaking

POWERFUL TWEETS by @ SteeleThoughts

"If the next time you say ‘hello’ to a student in the hall they look startled & confused, then you know there aren’t enough adults speaking to students in non-academic spaces. It also means it’s time to double down on your ‘hellos.’"


"When teachers are passionate about their lessons... they can transform the learning. When they are passionate about their students... they can transform their lives."


IF YOU DON'T CURRENTLY FOLLOW @SteeleThoughts YOU REALLY SHOULD START!
