1st Facutly Meeting Resources 2013

These resources were requested a while ago. Sorry it has taken so long to post but here ya go.....

13-14BeginYearFacultyMeeting - This was a google doc that didn't embed very well.

MasteryConnect is our assessment data collection program this year. Instead of coming up with some random technology activity I wanted it to be a relevant activity. But we had no internet that day so it didn't really work out for me.

Two of my teachers led our faculty in brainstorming for Open House later this month. We went from Open House to Parent Orientation and now back to Open House. That's a whole other blog post.

We used S.W.O.T activity to process our intervention/RTI time. Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats. Intervention has been built into the schedule for 3 years now and we needed to revisit and reflect on it. This was actually a very powerful strategy.

Closing activity was just for fun. It was a version of this: Purses, Pockets, and Wallets

Why I Lead #SAVMP

A picture is worth a thousand words so what better way to share my answer than with a picture.
This is why I lead.....
I lead to be a role model for these beautiful girls. They can accomplish anything. (Aren't they super cute?)
I lead because I want children and teachers to have fun learning. 
I lead because the leaders before me and around me did/do such a great job I want to be like them.
I lead because I just like it. I don't have any eloquent words of wisdom or a significant life event that leads me to this place in my life. I believe there is a reason for everything. 
Thank you all for sharing your "Why I Lead" stories.  Sorry mine is late:) I'm glad you accept late work:)
