2015 Goals: Professional Reading

One of my goals for 2015 is to expand my professional reading library!  Are you interested, too?  I have plenty of books you can come and look through and check out!  Not sure where to start?  Click here to follow an easy flow chart of some of the greats! If you haven't spent all of your credit card money yet, I highly recommend investing in some professional reading!

Walkabout Wednesday!

On Wednesday, 12/3/14, we participated in our 3rd Walkabout Wednesday!  This time, we focused on unpacking learning targets.  Need a refresher?  Click here for some awesome video resources for unpacking learning targets from the book, Leaders of their Own Learning by Ron Berger. Thank you to Mrs. Haithcock, Mrs. Weaver, Ms. Garner, Mrs. Durrett, Mrs. Fiscus, Mr. Bernal, and Mrs. Schug for opening their doors to us!
