“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.” - Martin Luther King Jr.
Happy Tuesday, Pioneers!
We hope that your long weekend was restful and rejuvenating- you deserve it! It was so wonderful to see everyone’s classrooms last week. We have seen some amazing work from you and your students! We will be working this week to put you into coaching pods (either the rigorous instruction or the learning environment) We will be sharing that information with you as soon as it is available.
Shout out to all Chattanooga CMs!!!!
Everyone has signed their Americorps documents on time AND everyone signed up for mid year conversations by the due date! WooHoo!! You guys rock! Thanks so much for completing these important action items by the due date!!
We are also sharing a calendar (see below) of TENTATIVE dates for upcoming events. These events are from now until May. We will also send you calendar reminders for the events as well. I do want to stress that while this is our plan for dates and events, we all know how unpredictable this school year has already been. We do reserve the right to change these dates, but promise to give you updated information in enough time to make any scheduling changes.
We can’t wait to see all of the amazing work you continue to do in your classroom and with your students. As always, reach out if we can support you in any way!
-Janiel, Molly, and Courtney
