Keeping Busy!!!

School starts in one week! I have been busy with freshmen orientation, laptop distribution, planning staff development and organizing and helping to lead our yearly Newer Teacher Staff Development. We seem to have really good group of new teachers (who are slightly overwhelmed with all of the information we are throwing at them). 🙂  I can sympathize; I remember how lost I felt my first year and I had no where near the resources and information to digest as our new teachers.

Tomorrow is our last day of Newer Teacher Training and then we jump right in with whole campus training for two days, then a work day, the weekend and the first day of school!

You can check out what the new teachers have been doing this week by viewing our wiki.  I am still working on the staff development for the whole staff but hope to have it finished tomorrow (keep your fingers crossed); I will eventually share that information with you all as well.

It is time again when educators (and probably students) feel a little overwhelmed and very busy until they can settle in to some sort of routine. I personally can’t wait for the routine to set in!

    The wiki looks great – are you really getting everyone on staff to edit? Very impressive.


  2. Dave,

    This particular wiki is for our brand new teachers and our 2nd year teachers (about 30). A group of about 7 or 8 (me, a VP and some teachers) collaborated planning the staff development via the wiki and some Google Docs and then all of the “new” teachers created an account in Wetpaint and edited their pages. We did something similar with our new teachers and whole staff last year and it worked really well. We thought it would be a good way to organize the training and introduce the teachers to wikis… so far we like it!

    Thanks!
