Looking forward to great year

Before the children come back to school to learn, the faculty and staff spent the last week and a half learning and preparing for the coming school year during our annual Faculty and Staff In-service session.

One highlight from this week came last Thursday as the entire team spent the morning with nationally featured speaker Debbie Silver. Together, we learned how to “Drum to the Beat of Different Marchers” which means we learned about ways to differentiate our instruction to meet the needs of all kids of learners. We also learned how to integrate these strategies and to challenge students to think and discover in the context of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM). As teachers, we were reminded by Debbie that, “Its not about how smart you are, its about how you are smart.”

Later that afternoon, teachers, staff and parents were invited to attend a second session entitled “Fall Down 7 Times, Get Up 8″ in which Debbie challenged us shift from a focus on self-esteem for our children (which can result in learned helplessness and other undesirable consequences) to self-efficacy, which is a growth mindset that measures success and value in terms of autonomy, effort, perseverance, and resilience.

Here is some feedback from parents and teachers:

“I AM a Teacher!!! The workshop validated that I work hard to know my kids and how important this is. At SG, I can do what needs to be done to lead my students in a direction where they know their strengths and build on these while learning to conquer the survival skills needed to be successful in this world.”

“Great presenter to inspire us as we begin a new year.”

“Debbie Silver is wonderful! I enjoyed her stories and examples — she has a lot to share. Seems like she hit all of our learning styles throughout her presentation.”

“It helps to be reminded to be mindful of all people and to be purposeful in one’s teaching  in order to celebrate individuality and nurture both academic and social growth.”
