Welcome Back!

President’s Greeting:

            Welcome back! I love this time of year when it starts to cool off, especially in the evening and I start trying to organize all those thoughts I’ve had all summer long about what would make my classroom even better. The fireweed is done blooming and we are back to work.

            This year brings some exciting changes. You will not be evaluated by student test scores! You won’t have to do an SGM unless you choose that format for your TEP. We will be working with the state about what will replace the AMP test, please watch for opportunities to weigh in on this subject. I will try to get as many of you involved in that conversation as I can.

            I met our new teachers Friday the 12th and was impressed. We have a great new group ready to engage our kids in the learning process. I look forward to seeing everyone during my fall building visits. If we don’t get a chance to chat please don’t hesitate to call me any time for any questions or concerns. I love talking to members. I hope you have a great year!
