Reaching Out To Teachers: How Can We Support?

Teachers who experience more positive emotions at work are more resilient and creative in their own classroom management. By improving our social emotional behaviors as staff members, we make our schools better places. The research (REVIEW OF EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH 2009; 79; 49-419), also advocates for schools and districts to adopt a broader idea of professional development, one that builds in social emotional learning supports for everyone in the school.


How can we build in "POSITIVES" for our teachers? How can this positivity cross departments and buildings? Gather some ideas.

SLO 2: CLOSE Reading and Responding to Complex Text

Close reading stresses engaging with a text of sufficient complexity directly and examining meaning thoroughly and methodically, encouraging students to read and reread deliberately. Directing student attention on the text itself empowers students to understand the central ideas and key supporting details.


What do you see your teachers doing to engage students in close reading? Are they aware of the PD resources on the shared drive?

Planning Period PDs

Our PD sessions are intended to give teachers quick tips that they can implement in classrooms immediately. Come with topics your teachers are interested in and we can plan for next year.
