NEA Visit Last Week
Amongst all the chaos of what's happening in Wisconsin and other states, there was a bright spot during the last week. Donovan King, Assistant Director of NEA ESP-Quality, visited our district with Dr. Sheila Simmons, Director of the NEA Priority Schools Campaign. They were able to visit with staff from McKay, Hallman and Roberts, who are all 'recepients' of the School Improvement Grants. They were also invited to sit in on a CLASS Project meeting.
While they were here, they learned a lot about the SIG process and what's working/not working at those sites. I'll be doing some more visits this week to chat with our members who are in the trenches in those schools, because Dr. Simmons invited me to present with schools from Seattle and Las Vegas at the NCESP Conference, March 10-13, in Washington DC. I am looking forward to sharing the positive work being done, and willing to share information about what's needing improvement.
If there is any observation you would like me to share at the conference, please let me know.
Thanks! And thanks for doing what you do everyday!
