My school went outside of the box today with the Professional Development, literally out of the box that is our school and held sessions on the football field, courtyard and practice field.
It was nice to be out in the sun. I wish that the technology would’ve worked for them but I give my administrative team a ton of credit for the effort to make it happen. Even with the tech fails, they still seemed united and excited about the upcoming school year which was awesome. Selfie below is me, no filter, but it was hot so not much of a smile either.
Here is my sketchnote from this afternoon’s session that was mostly about business. I am on cycle for getting evaluated this year so you can probably tell that my ear was open to that part of the discussion. ALSO should note that the “Late Arrival Sherrie Birts” is a note to self that if I see that on a schedule, I need to send those students to the auditorium (not that Sherrie Birts is a late arrival).
Overall, a productive day but I still have a number of things I need to attend to before I am ready for the first day of class on Wednesday. I’m just going to get plenty of sleep tonight so I can be 100% for freshmen tomorrow and welcome them with the most Rocket Pride I can. You only get one day to be your first day at Rich East High School and I want to be a part of theirs and be a blessing to everyone I encounter.
