Weekly Blast 3/1/21

"The content of a book holds the power of education and it is with this power that we can shape our future and change lives."

--Malala Yousafzai

Hello Chattanooga Pioneers!

Happy first day of March and first day of Women’s History Month! All of the quotes for the March blasts will be from amazing women in education or women who made a difference and helped change the course of history.

We are on our third week of in person instruction, and hope that you are starting to gain some momentum with your students. Molly and Courtney have seen some amazing teaching and learning happening in classrooms over the past couple of weeks.

This week we will have a pod coaching session for both rigorous instruction pod and the learning environment pod. You should have received an email from Molly or Courtney on Friday if you are expected to attend the pod coaching sessions, but everyone is welcome to attend!

2 CMs, we are excited to announce that Hamilton County Schools will be holding several virtual job fairs in March. The job fair for those who are seeking a position in secondary education is March 1st from 5-7 PM. Click here to register. For those who are seeking a position in elementary education, the job fair is March 15th from 5-7. Click here to register. If you have any questions about the job fair or open positions in Hamilton County for next school year reach out to Courtney, Molly or Janiel, or you can also reach out to Jerrica Johnson with Hamilton County Schools.

We hope that you have another wonderful week of teaching and learning with your students. If you have any questions or concerns don’t hesitate to let us know!

-Janiel, Molly, and Courtney
