Good morning, all! This will be short as I’m attempting to get myself awake and back to work after a nice summer break. Let me tell you, the dogs are very confused as I’ve been sleeping until 8 am or so these past few months LOL
This week will be 5 days of district professional development. Why 5 days you ask? Not sure except it probably has something to do with the state requirement of a certain number of days for teachers and for students, it is a certain number of minutes we need to be in school. We don’t have our schedule yet for this week, but I’m really hoping we’ll have a lot of time to get with our teams to plan this week. Our college course syllabus is due next Wednesday, and we have a new (to our campus) teacher on our team. One day, we’re at the big district center where I’m almost sure we’ll have a session on active shooter situations. Definitely not looking forward to that one.
We’ll see. Normally, there’s lots of repetitive and boring sessions we have to attend, and our days run 7:30-4 pm since there’s an hour and a half for lunch. We’re such a huge district, and all subjects are convening at separate campuses. This means at lunch, even if half of us go to a restaurant, it’s going to take awhile to get served, etc. I’ll be packing lunch so I can save money and use that downtime to get things done so I don’t have to work this weekend (hopefully). I’m hopeful that since this is the first time we’ve been able to do our district PD in person in 2 years that it will be helpful and supportive. I’m staying optimistic!
Anyway, wish me luck! I hope everyone has a great Monday!
