Back to School Professional Development

Repost from Staff Development 2014:

Staff development Day 1 went very well.  My day is not over yet.  I have a board meeting to attend tonight so until then I thought I would share a few pictures from today.  The morning was spent in the auditorium with the superintendent and entire district.  The afternoon is spent on campus in staff meetings.  The first meeting is our "typical" first meeting of procedures, policies and campus information.  Here are a few pictures.  

 Each teacher has their teacher binder with them.  They will bring it to meetings and we will add to it as the year goes on.  If you are interested in starting a binder, you can download it here.  I will give teachers handouts either in person or place in their mailbox.  If it has holes punched in it, then it goes in the binder.

Each teacher has an ipad and they bring it to my meetings.  I do not print the presentation.  They scan the QR code or type in a link to access it.  They follow along with me via the iPad.  Please excuse my messy hair...I have no idea what's up with it. I'm assisting my teacher on scanning the QR code.

I created a popcorn bar for my teachers to enjoy.  I had caramel popcorn and regular popcorn with M&M's and Reese's candy.  Yummy!



 We are all a part of something beautiful.  We all have strengths but we often only see the negative in ourselves.  No one is insignificant in any way.  We all have our differences for a reason.  My weakness may be your strength.  We need to be different to rely on each other.  When we all have different talents we make a very strong team.
I had teachers write their strength on the puzzle piece.  I will link all of these together to show we make a whole.  We all matter.  You are a piece of the puzzle in someone's life.  Bonnie Arbon said, "You may never know where you fit but others will fill the holes in their lives with pieces of you."

 I hope all of you have a wonderful week.
