Welcome back!

We hope that there was time over break where you took time to relax and refresh.

January is a month where you can have a fresh start to rebuild/refine routines and you can take fresh eyes to curriculum and your teaching plans. It is also a time where you might continue to build connections with other staff in your building/district/professional networks! As the second semester begins, think about the strategies you will use to build relationships with parents, students, and colleagues as an agent of change. In addition, consider ways you may build and manage a professional social media presence to receive and provide professional support.

We invite you to check out a webinar hosted by Inspire titled: A Teacher’s Purpose: What the World Needs Now on January 15th from 3PM-4PM. You can register for this webinar HERE. It is free to attend.

We hope you have a wonderful start to 2020!
