Is there an idea that has come to life in your school that has caught on, that works, that people relate to, that makes a difference for students? From the most nitty gritty ways to get kids to be on time and bring materials to class, to bigger steps around school climate, culture, academics, data exploration, communication to families, observation practice, teacher collaboration, you name it! Share your story of what’s working and what you’ve learned along the way – this informal get together is a way to listen, learn, and share with your colleagues around the region! Feel free to bring any materials, photo, or video you want to share with the group!
