Well another new school year is up and running. The first week was busy but good. Many meetings discussing start up and discussion centered around our division's grading / assessment guidelines (which I'm excited about how this hopefully help us all re-examine our current grading practices and look at ways to make them more meaningful and engaging for students) We also had a great opening liturgy followed by two very good speakers that focused on mercy something we can all focus on giving and receiving. There is much to look forward too this year. I plan on doing weekly reflections on the #rcsdconnect program I'm part of (see https://flipgrid.com/8d3171d2 for the goals of the group members), working with my intern and reflecting on our practice, issues and challenges that will come up, and more. Should be a great year!
