State Superintendent-Tony Smith March 24th

We know the time 9:00-9:30! We know we have a slightly different schedule! I have seen in the last 2 weeks some excellent education in our building by various teachers and I am proud of all of you! Who is up for the challenge to have the State Superintendent to be impressed with your excellent teaching skills? He likes to share what he sees at schools in his updates to the state; how will we be remembered?

Passionate Learners: How to Engage and Empower Your Students

Would I like being a student in my own classroom? A teacher tool for reflection:

Do I greet every student with a smile?

Do I ask my students about their personal lives?

Do I use the name of each child at least once during a day or lesson?

Do I notice when students are out of sorts?

Do I laugh with my students?

Do my students trust me?

Can students state their opinions/ give feedback without me retaliating?
