Welcome back, Mount Markham CSD students! Yesterday, our instructional staff finished the second of two Superintendent's Conference Days and were able to attend a variety of sessions and meetings to prepare for the school year. One of the most popular sessions was a classroom technology professional development offering hosted by Sarah Robinson and Alaina Brower with the help of Kristin Spinella. Teachers had a chance to learn about Book Creator, EduProtocols, Augmented Reality, Lego Robotics, Breakout Boxes, and other emerging classroom technologies. Additionally, thank you to Board of Education member Tom Huxtable for stopping by and participating in the session!
Today, we are happy to welcome our instructional staff back to Mount Markham CSD, along with some new faces joining us this school year! We kicked off the day with the first of two back-to-back Superintendent's Conference Days before students return on September 7. Staff had the chance to mingle over breakfast, celebrate successes of the previous school year and set goals for this year, complete required training, and familiarize themselves with the new ViewSonic interactive whiteboards. Tomorrow, our staff will have additional opportunities to learn about the ViewSonic interactive whiteboards, discuss other emerging educational technologies, set up their classrooms, and attend other informative meetings and sessions.
Congratulations to Alaina Brower and Sarah Robinson for becoming Book Creator Collaborators! We are grateful for everything you do to provide new and exciting opportunities for our students.
