First Day Back with the Whole Staff

Today was the first day back with the entire staff.  We covered some basic procedures and then commenced into some staff development. Feel free to view the wiki to see what we have been up to.  We didn’t get quite as much actually staff development time this year from the district so our time for “choices” was a little limited, but I think we did okay with the planning… as always our goal is to allow teachers some activities and sessions to choose from and limit “seat time” to the bare minimum.  Because really, what is the point of staff development if your staff just feels forced in to sitting and listening to you talk while they think of all of the other stuff they need to be doing?

I spent the majority of my day creating Blackboard courses, getting teachers set up in Gradespeed, entering upcoming courses in our staff development system and assisting in sessions as needed. Tomorrow looks to be as hectic. At some point I would like to get in my office and get some stuff organized, but that may have to wait until Friday (or unfortunately Saturday).

Hopefully once things get settled I can start writing some more in-depth pieces again.  Hopefully the start of your school year is going well too!
