Students Use Math Skills to Breakout!

Students in the classrooms of Caroline Resler and Becky Strand used their math skills to breakout. Our technology Integration Coach Rob Swanson worked with Caroline and Becky to set things up and students were given 45 minutes to complete the tasks to break out of the box and solve the problem. Student worked in groups and demonstrated patience as they worked through the series of clues. Thank you to Rob, Caroline, and Becky for providing this excellent opportunity to the students of School For All Seasons. If you are interested in bringing this to your classroom, please contact Rob Swanson!

Faculty Resources Help Teachers Access Information:

Cambridge-isanti Schools have created a number of helpful resource sites for teachers to use this school year. Here are some examples:

Isanti Intermediate and School For All Seasons Faculty Resources Page:

This page has all of the resources you need to help guide your professional work this school year. It contain schedules, PBIS Information, PLC Notes, Faculty Meeting Notes, Our Faculty Google Classroom, as well as intervention resources for math, reading, and technology. It also contains all of the SAT information for the school year, information on standards, and a link to the shared drive. It is highly recommended that you bookmark this page for quick access to a variety of information.

Cambridge-Isanti Professional Development Homepage:

This page houses all of the Cambridge-Isanti Professional Development Resources. On this site you can find the On Target newsletter by teaching and learning, Technology Resources, Instructional Resources, In-Service Day agendas and information, Building Professional Development Information, Innovation Information, and teacher Discussion Boards. This is another site that should be bookmarked for easy access.


Our Professional Development and Evaluation is tied to the work of Robert Marzano and his research. iObservation is an online tool to help with the process of teacher evaluation. This tool will be used to develop your 65% Professional Growth Plan which is tied to elements in Domain One. This is also what you will use to do reflection activities and your formal summative evaluation as well as your informal peer observation.
