I’ve mentioned that I have been doing a lot of reflection these past several weeks as the school year comes to an end. Today I wrote an overview for our Professional Development Newsletter to wrap up the ‘year in workshops’. Included in this article I took all the workshop descriptions for the year and put them into Wordle to see what percolated up to the top.
Looking at this word cloud it confirms what I have believed all along. We come to school every day for the students, that is our top priority and should be always. I believe that we are working toward the right goal, but by seeing the words that appear the most throughout our workshop descriptions I am confirmed of that. Our focus:
Student learning in classrooms where teachers focus on a continuum of assessments that inform their instruction so that all STUDENTS can learn.
