What's going on at RMS?

Every day is a new day. What happened yesterday is in the past and today is ours to enjoy. Each new day brings the opportunity to grow and make the decision to be the best version of yourself. If you are waiting for someone or something to "wake you up" so you will finally have the motivation, desire, and passion to be a better you, well...you will probably continue waiting.

You have the ability to make each day the BEST day. You have the choice to be better than you were the day before. Your willingness and desire to become better shows up in your decisions, actions, and attitudes.

It is easy to become complacent and be satisfied with where you are. As Jim Collins states in his book, Good to Great, "Good is the enemy of great." Why? He explains that "When we have good schools, businesses, and good government, we are prone to accept that level of quality as sufficient." Are you satisfied with where you are? Are you okay with being good...not great? Do you want to be better tomorrow than you were today?

To create a better school, we have to create a better US! What if we all committed to be better each day than we were the day before? How would our students benefit if we improved a little each day? How would the success of our school improve if every member of our staff determined to be better today than they were the day before?

Just remember, there is no better day than TODAY to be the best YOU! You deserve it, your family deserves, and your students deserve it!


Google Forms

The formative assessment tool we will feature this week is Google Forms. Google Forms allows teachers to create questions in a variety of formats to gather information regarding the student's comprehension on a particular learning goal. Google Forms allows teachers to embed images and videos which makes the tool even more powerful! This tool can also be used at the beginning of a lesson to determine content misconceptions, which will aide in guiding targeted instruction. The possibilities with Google Forms is endless. I encourage all of you to try it out and see how it impacts the learning of your students!
