Tara created super cute thank you notes and gave pumpkins to teachers who tried out her challenge in her last newsletter. I love how she issues a call to action for her teachers to try something new, and then incentivizes their participation! Click the photo to see it larger and read the note Tara sent to each of her teachers!
Felicia and Amy McComas presented at the NC Music Educators Association together. Felicia facilitated EIGHT session and shared how to use digital tools with their music curriculum and with ASW. She knocked it out of the park! This is a great example of professional leadership!
Brenda has a creative upcycle solution to storing and transporting iPads that I feel should be a Pinterest post! She used a file folder sorter, a powerstrip, and a Rubbermaid tote. A quick drill in the corner of the tote lets the power cord come up for easy plugging. The chargers stay plugged in to the tote. Each tote is barcoded for easy sign out from the media center. I love this idea!
