This Week...

We're following the B Schedule (5-4-3-2-1)

Monday 10/13: Faculty Meeting

Wednesday 10/15: Walkabout Wednesday

Lunch N' Learn

Beginning Wednesday, October 22, we will begin some "Lunch N Learn" sessions in room 119!  These sessions are completely voluntary.  Our admin team will be on lunch duty, so you will only have to walk your class up to the lunch room, and retrieve them when lunch is over.  Come chew and chat in 119 about various topics of interest.  Our first topic will be "Innovative Education".  What do you know about this topic?  Any stories you can share?  Cool videos?  This is casual - just exchanging thoughts and ideas.  Please come join! :)

Tech Savvy or Tech Scary?

Whether you incorporate technology in your classroom daily, weekly, or are terrified to try it at all - you can still grow!  Check out this article from Edudemic on 11 Simple Ways to Start Using Technology in the Classroom.  Challenge yourself!
