Great Job This Week
Our team of IAs have done incredible work to copy, organize, and support teachers. Your work is so appreciated. I also want to thank our Behavior team for their work this week. Kristen, Marsha, and Henry have supported the food bus this week and reached out to connect with families. They have worked to get in touch with families to ensure that computers and school work were connected with students. Henry, in addition to the other behaviorists in the district, have worked to create a soon to be published support document for families to address challenging behaviors at home, how to set up routines and schedules, and ideas for rewarding positive home behavior. I think it will be very beneficial to our families. Truly everyone in our building have worked to make our current situation successful for all of our lions.
Each of you are doing incredible things each day. Things that you never thought you'd be doing as an educator. Sure you knew you'd be teaching or supporting teachers and student but you never knew you'd be doing it over a computer, or in a building with no children in it. You've had days I'm sure of success and pride in your accomplishments. You've also had days end in tears and frustration. Good days, bad days, or even mediocre days, you are doing great things. I found this Ted Talk (below) that I think is worth the watch. While the speakers life experiences are not anyone's in our building, his lessons learned from life are ones that I think we can apply and use in these very strange times we find ourselves in. Enjoy.
