It is October, my first round of professional development with 85+ teachers is under my belt and I am eager to get into classrooms. This year offers our district the opportunities to deepen our students knowledge like it has never before.
The teachers have their pre-assessments complete, they know their students areas of strengths and weaknesses in language arts and mathematics. These are the foundational blocks that will help us take our students further than we have ever taken them before. It was hard work, painstakingly hard work, but it will be worth it.
I can’t wait to see where we will all be at the end of the school year. I am looking forward to working along side the teachers as we delve into the new curriculum, as we question the “why”, as we continue to learn and grow along with our students.
