Credit Recovery Reminders

* All assignments are set for retakes
* Students must be actively working to remain in the course
* There are NO "CATCH-UP" plans for credit recovery courses
k12 Instructional Coaches will be guests in our CC Sessions
No need to be nervous about this, but wanted you to know if you saw Stephanie Chi, Tamra, Daphne, and Shatamara drop in your class.
They will informally drop in to CC for 15-60 minutes. It will be random and not everyone will receive a visit.
- Each month we will be looking for one best practice. November and December: Standards-based learning objectives guiding lessons
- Follow-up email will be sent to teacher and direct lead/supervisor and will include the following:
- Teacher/Class/Date/Number of Students/Lesson Focus
- Instructional Bright Spot
- Comment on integration of monthly best practice focus
We will be sharing best practices liberally across schools
About the strategy….
Give a shout out or Spirit Sprinkle to your favorite co-worker
Annette Ciaravino: Annette is an awesome co-teacher! Even though math is not her background she does a great job helping the students try to understand the concepts!
Ashley Moller: I'm so thankful to be co-teaching ELA with Ashley. We have a great time together. Ashley stays on top of things with our kids who are falling behind, and she enjoys collaborating with other teachers.
Vincentia Paul-Constantine: Vincentia is always ready and willing to help answer questions. She's been really helpful to me since I started at GCA.
Tammy Cruz-Hernandez: Tammy is always quick to respond to any questions I may have.
Whitney Kelley: Whitney really cares about our GCA students. She is always happy to help.
Laura Lowndes-Bush: Laura takes the best IEP minutes. She should co-teach a class on taking SPED minutes. Great Job, Laura
Dan Dage: Dan is very thorough and always thinks through each step of a process when helping our SPED kids.
Crystal Hall :Crystal has done an awesome job of jumping into GCA in her first year here.
Stephanie Flemming: Last year during a meeting Stephanie talked about how much she enjoyed her teaching time and was always wanting more time with her students. With all the changes, I just keep hearing her say its why we started teaching.
Jessica Shuman: She stepped it up and took on an assignment that we were supposed to do together while I was busy testing. Definitely a team player!!!
Tammy Cruz-Hernandez: Tammy makes herself available at the drop of a hat to answer all the quirky questions I send her way. Thanks Tammy for all your help so far this year! You are awesome! :-)
