I feel so fortunate to work in a district and community that supports professional development that is relevant, rewarding and engaging.
This fall I have numerous choices offered to me for professional development including:
Teachers As Scholars - offers 1 to 3 day content based professional development seminars led by university faculty for public and private school K-12 teachers and administrators. Teachers as Scholars also offers overseas study trips to Florence, Paris, La Napoule, France, India, and Dublin.
Primary Source -promotes history and humanities education by connecting educators to people and cultures throughout the world. In partnership with teachers, scholars, and the broader community, Primary Source provides learning opportunities and curriculum resources for K-12 educators. By introducing global content, Primary Source shapes the way teachers and students learn, so that their knowledge is deeper and their thinking is flexible and open to inquiry.
and my district also signed onto IDEAS this year:
Initiatives for Developing Equity and Achievement for Students (IDEAS),
a merger of two past EDCO programs – Empowering Multicultural Initiatives (EMI) and Greater Boston Students of Color Achievement Network (GBSOCAN). A program committed to achievement and success for ALL students via culturally proficient practices
Envisioning…culturally proficient classrooms and schools in the greater Boston area that honor and include the individuality of students and families of all racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds

The 9/11 Memorial honors the sad day of loss in our country. Artists, architects and designers used their talents to create a memorial that honors the horrible events on 9/11.
Here is video of architect Michael Arad discussing the memorial.
Here is video of one of the artists discussing the lighting installation created that will be on this evening.
This display, known as Tribute in Light®, appears as twin shafts filling the void of where the World Trade Center twin towers previously stood in lower Manhattan. The memorial plaza will be open on Sept. 11 to the general public for the first time since the attacks, from 6:00 p.m. to midnight, for anyone who wants a closer look at this feat of illumination. Tribute in Light® has become known throughout the world as an example of the healing power of art as people remember and revisit the 9/11 Memorial.
After 9/11, several individuals came up with the idea of two beams of light rising above the skyline of New York. These artists, lighting designers and architects collaborated as part of the effort to promote unity during the massive rescue and recovery that was underway. The team received a grant from the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation and additional assistance by Con Edison, New York’s utility company. Six months after 9/11, the lighting tribute was presented for the first time on March 11, 2002. It was produced by the Municipal Art Society of New York (MAS), founded in 1893 to preserve landmarks and public spaces, and Creative Time, an organization that commissions public art.

The 9/11 Memorial created the Artist Registry. This is a database of professional and novice artists who created of works of art in response to 9/11. It is a wonderful collection of art from around the world and a great way to see how others express there feelings and emotions through art.
Parents will have the opportunity to meet teachers and familiarize themselves with their child’s schedule while following an abbreviated school day. Teachers will be able to provide parents with a course overview and outline their expectations.
