PGO - PROFESSIONAL GROWTH OPPORTUNITY
Who are your PGO's this year? How have you been challenged to learn when working with your PGO? What strategies might you explore to ensure that students have every opportunity to grow as well?
2 X 10 Strategy

There’s a simple way to connect with a challenging student, according to “The Two-Minute Relationship Builder” from the July issue of Education Update.

Talk about whatever topic interests him—sports, cars, family life, Legos, whatever—but keep discipline and academics off the table.
