A big shout out goes to all teachers to accommodate CELDT testing.  Thanks to all for adjusting their morning schedules and taking in kids.  A huge thanks goes to Angela, Erika, Aranzazu, Jeanne, Maria, Dene, Leslie and Connie for facilitating the group and individual testing.  Lastly, an enormous shout out to Adriana for coordinating the whole shibang!  Thanks so much!

Emory on 3!  1-2-3 EMORY!!


SEPTEMBER 15, 2013


As we approach our Fall Break, we should recognize all teachers for the planning and learning that has taken place since we started back in July.  Planning around our Common Core Units of Study and keeping our focus on ‘What We Teach, How We Teach, and Authentic Literacy’ has been rewarding and challenging.  We knew it wasn’t going to be easy, but we continue to be commited to work together to meet the needs of our students.  Change is uncomfortable, messy and sometimes very hard.  That is why, when it is most difficult, we are there for eachother.  You should all be proud of the work you have done together!!  Have a great week!!

EMORY ON THREE!!!  1 – 2 – 3   EMORY!!!

A huge Shout Out goes to all the teachers for participating in deep, productive and sometimes uncomfortable discussion ON TOP OF getting their classrooms ready for the first day of school. RESPECT!

Another huge Shout Out goes to all staff: Eunice, Martha, Cindy, Carlos, Alex, Teresa, and everyone else I failed to mention, for all the hard work to begin the year.

Have a great week!!

Big thanks goes to the 6th graders for taking the time to buddy up with the Kindergarteners at lunch. They taught them the routines and rules of the cafeteria and playground. It was great to see them bond and make friends.

A shout out goes to teachers that we visited with Ana Reyes. We saw kids interacting with text through toolkit lessons and saw kids using chromebooks to take an assessment. It was a good visit.

Writing in all content areas is a goal in all grade levels. Check out an example of this in 1st grade math.

  1. I finally figured this out. I totally accept the responsibility to expand my technological savvy; however, to have to go into this website for our weekly bulletin and searching around for “leave a reply”–And it keeps freezing on me—it feels like busy work. I’d rather spend my time reading Common Core resources, etc.
    My survival food of choice is jelly coconut.

  2. The post states 2.23 pm. In fact it was 7:22 am. I hope my prior post is not too negative. I am just finding my time so tight and resources for developing better teaching and understanding of Common Core as well as preparing for PBS, Cybersafety, Lang. Development–It is a lot. I am seeking any way to make our work smarter vs. harder. I do highly value the sharing teachers’ lessons, anchor charts, etc. that are posted either in email or on this site. signing out 7:29 am

  3. Shout out to Impact Teacher Amy Prout for being open to new learning and for transforming the auditorium storage area into an inviting “mini-classroom.” (Stop by and take a peek!)

  4. Shout out to Impact Teacher Aryn Stegemiller for her creativity and positive attitude even though she has one of the more challenging 4th-6th EO groups. Thanks for your ideas!

  5. Shout out to Michelle Gates for her attention to detail. She is constantly thinking of ways to improve the Imagine Learning sessions and is always offering her help by placing work orders, checking headphones, and creating/updating lists. Thank you!

  6. HUGE shout out to Erin and me!! We just finished 59 parent conferences, 55 of which were home visits!! It was a VERY positive experience and we are hopeful that we will receive the grant again next year so that we can continue to make these connections that we hope will last this year and beyond. 🙂

  7. Thanks! We have had several parents ask us when this would spread to other grades as they feel it’s such a wonderful experience. If anyone is interested in taking this on, Erin and I could give you our perspective and some tips. Plus, we’re probably going to attend a National Conference at the end of the month (they want us to speak!) so we will pick up even more pointers then.

  8. Shout Out to Adriana for all her time and effort working on ELD, CELDT, Imagine Learning and helping out with conferences!! You ROCK!!

  9. A huge shout out to my team members for being awesome to work with! Another big shout out to the K and TK teachers for preparing such great 1st grade students for us to work with this yr! And, another shout out to the 2nd grade teachers for communicating with the first grade team regarding asking for last year’s 1st grade student assessments, homework, and instruction! You ALL are SUPER!
