Digital Curriculum Resources Survey
I am working to get a better handle on the use of digital curriculum resources in the district. As many of you know, my position is new this year and I am working to help determine how best to support teachers in the use of the digital resources that the district subscribes to. I am also interested learning about other tools that teachers use or are interested in using. If you could fill out this survey: http://bit.ly/plsasdce, which should take about 10 minutes, I would really appreciate it. Let me know if you have any questions.

Here is a great inspirational video I would encourage everyone to take 3 minutes to watch. While I know change and growth can be scary, it is also when we discover the most about ourselves, our untapped potential, and new passions that make us better. As educators in PLSAS, we are always going to be on personal and professional journeys of continuous improvement. As a leading and innovative district, we will always relentlessly strive to be better, to improve, and do whatever is needed to help all of our students and families reach their full potential.
