“Quality education has the power to transform societies in a single generation, provide children with the protection they need from the hazards of poverty, labour exploitation, and disease, and give the knowledge, skills, and confidence to reach their full potential.”_ Audrey Hepburn
Wow! I can’t believe that we are in the last few days of March and that Spring Break is right around the corner! Many of you are preparing students for Benchmarks, end of year testing, and other assessments that come with the end of the school year. We have missed seeing you in your classrooms over the past few weeks, but we are excited to see all that you and your students have been learning and doing when we return from Spring Break!
This week our coaching will be a regional skills lab. You will get an email from either Molly (RI Pod) or Courtney (LE pod) about which skills lab you will attend on Wednesday evening. We are also super excited to announce that we will be holding an Equity Chatt for our Chattanooga CMs on Thursday, April 22 from 6-7:30 PM with some great community partners. Registration for the event is below. Also, remember to submit your work from Thursday's asynchronous pod coaching event to your coach by EOD Tuesday.
Since many of you are leaving town on Thursday afternoon, we have decided to postpone our All Cohort Event until after Spring Break. We will send more details after Spring Break.
With next week being Spring Break, Courtney and Molly will be out of office for a couple of days next week. If you have a pressing matter, please feel free to still contact us or you can contact Janiel, as well. We hope that you all enjoy the much needed and deserved Spring Break and we are looking forward to jumping back into coaching after you return from Break!
