Please include a brief narrative describing how the team member exemplified community, leadership, or excellence. We will celebrate during our vertical team meetings on Fridays!

December Discussion Post
Several posts mentioned the importance of building relationships with our students and motivating them to achieve success. Some of the ideas included: only retesting on the missed AKS instead of the entire exam, swapping teachers for a day to teach in their strength, reviewing the grade book to make sure grades reflect mastery toward AKS, small group work, eClass to assess and differentiate, and the use of other digital tools.
Thank you for willingness to reflect, share, and implement new strategies! Take a few minutes to review additional posts and continue the collaboration.
