Spring Forward

Spring Break is nearly upon us and I know that I'm not alone in welcoming the vacation with open arms. I hope you'll find some ways to de-stress and energize yourselves. Should you need help de-stressing during the school day, check out this resource.


Last Advice, Assistance, and Collaboration Opportunity

Are you one hour shy of earning another university credit? If so, you might want to attend one of the two bonus Advice, Assistance, and Collaboration meetings we have planned on either Wednesday, April 5 or Tuesday, April 18 from 4:00-5:00 at the PDA. (You will only want to attend one of these, as they'll have the same content. Additionally, this AAC will not replicate any of the previous Induction workshops we've had this year or during New Teacher Institute.)



Our Induction Colloquium is fast-approaching (May 25th! Add it to your calendar!). You can prepare for this important event by using this Colloquium Guide. You'll need to make a copy of it for your own use. This is not an assignment, but rather a planning tool for our event. I discussed it with the CTs at our last meeting, but contact me with any questions, should any arise.
