glimpse – March 29

on March 29, 2011

It’s being called a “summit.”

Today, the primary teachers in my school will be leaving their classrooms to gather off-site for an afternoon to continue the discussion begun 2 years ago as we have moved towards PreK to grade 3 alignment.  “Big Ideas,” “Safety Net,” “high leverage standards,” are descriptors of the work we’ve been trying to do together.

Norms will be set for these passionate, knowledgeable and sensitive professionals and I’ve been asked to be a time-keeper, a task requiring keen watching.

I will be very tired tonight.

  1. Oh how I long for such a day. I am struggling to get a time for our Pre-K teachers and kindergarten teachers to talk and collaborate around classroom practice and goals. Someday . . . .

    Sounds likes it’ll be tiring, but worthwhile! That’s great that you can meet together and talk about such critical things that will improve student learning.

    Wow – summits like this can produce great work; I wish our district collaborated this way!

    It’s a break of some kind. Hopefully, items will be decided upon. Do you get to say, “Is this your final answer?”

    Clever image- it elevated the meaning of your post (ha! elevated, no pun intended).
