Here's a hint: The following pictures were taken the same year.

The Challenge is on...

Do you have any fun flashback photos that have to do with teaching and learning that you would like to share? Let's see who can find the funniest little "Jewel" to appear in next week's newsletter.

Keep reading below to see flashback photos from my classroom. They may not be "funny" but I thought you might like to see my classroom and get to know me better as a teacher.

Important Reminders

A PLC Reflection was placed in your box this week. Please do not stress over this. I sincerely would like your feedback so I can better plan for next year. Please try to return it to me before Monday, May 18th. If there are questions that are not relevant to you or you cannot answer, that is fine. Just complete what you can.

I shared with you the scope and sequence template for 2015-2016. Mrs. Good and Mrs. Hatcher have requested that everyone use this format for next school year. Please make it your goal to update and revise your scope and sequence for next year before the end of school. I realize that the math teachers have new TEKS and will need more time this summer to rework their scope and sequences. Mrs. Good will help us with that.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Organizing Web Resources

A couple of weeks ago, Stacey was scheduled to present during our PLCs on organizing web resources. Because everyone is so busy, we decided to create detailed notes on this topic instead for you. If you are looking for a new way to organize all of your favorite websites, click on the link below. Let Stacey know if you have any questions.

Lovin' these links!

Mrs. McElyea's Flashback Friday

In honor of celebrating Flashback Friday, I thought I would share a few pictures with you from when I was in the classroom to give you some insight to some of my greatest years in education.
