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

ART ROOM WISH LIST

Boxes of Ziploc Bags ( gallon size)
I had a delightful day meeting interesting and creative young adults. I am always impressed by my students. They were happy to be in school (well most of them!), engaging and wonderful to be around. I was most impressed by my homeroom students who got to know three new students. They showed them around, helped out with their schedules and made these new students feel welcome.
Getting to know my students is top priority. I mean really get to know who they are- what they like and dislike, what they are passionate about and what art they are interested in creating.
Today I discovered that I have students who like to dye their hair, teenagers who love to draw and some who hate it but love sculpting. I have the captain of the football team, students who play four sports, love to dance and students who are in the band. I have students who want to be architects and engineers and even a student who gave a TED talk in the TEDx club. Impressive right!
It is going to be a great year getting to know these young, creative individuals!
This year I am focusing on having fun in all of my classes....so here is an entertaining video to start off the year! Enjoy!
