3/22/21 Weekly Blast

"There is no greater pillar of stability than a strong, free, and educated woman."-Angelina Jolie


Hello Chattanooga Pioneers!

What a wacky week last week was, with Benchmark testing and a 2 hour delay on top of that! I hope that this week is more stable and that you and your students are able to have a great final week of Benchmark testing!

Since many schools are still Benchmark testing, Courtney and Molly will not be in schools doing observations and pop-ins. Instead, we will have all pod cohort meeting. If you are in the rigorous instruction pod then everyone in that pod will have a coaching session on Thursday with Molly. Likewise, anyone who is in the learning environment pod will have a pod coaching session with Courtney on Thursday. Check your email for more information and details.

Next week, March 31st there will be regional skills lab. Molly and Courtney will email you by 4 PM on Friday 3/26/21. We also have an awesome All Cohort meeting next Thursday (April 1st), but we will share more information about that later this week.

We hope that you have an amazing week, and if you have any questions or concerns, reach out to any of us!

-Janiel, Molly, and Courtney
