From Debbie Miller's Teaching with Intention...
From all the ways we put our thinking and theirs on display to what we say and do to foster and find significance in student thinking, we’re letting kids in on who we are, what we expect from them (and ourselves), and what we believe about teaching and learning.
Super Star Shout Outs!
GINORMOUS THANK YOU to each of you for your time and participation during the Winning Cultures PD on Monday! We have heard lots of great feedback about the impact it has made on starting this second half. Our students are so fortunate and blessed to have such caring educators greeting, acknowledging, appreciating and affirming them in your classrooms each day!
And a Special THANKS to Kathy and her Universal Screening Team for your diligence in getting so many of our Texans assessed this week!!! Also to Amy, Kathy, Kathryn, Angela and Jessica for your presentations during Wednesday's Faculty Meeting! You are helping us turn our knowledge into ACTION!
I also want to express my gratitude and appreciation for all of our Old Town Staff for your hard work in delivering world class instruction each day. You are making such a positive difference in the lives of our Star Texans! Keep up the great work!!!
Have an AWESOME weekend!!!
