Quote of the Week
“Be curious, logical, and collaborative.”
- Richard Dawkins
The Good Stuff!
The awesome thing about our profession (and this building in particular) is the ability to collaborate on our curiosities (like the quote above states). Are you ever curious about how another staff members students scored on particular questions on the exam? Feel free to ask! Maybe even schedule a time to observe a particular lesson or technology strategy. There are ONLY positives that will come from acting on your curiosity - educationally speaking. Another, more formal action step would be to sign up for a Classroom Learning Lab. I promise you will thoroughly enjoy it!
