MakerSpace Madness

Thanks to Mrs. McSheehy and Mrs. Burgoyne, the MakerSpace arena is really up and running now.  If you have an opportunity to see what the students are up to, check in during one of the lunch hours or after school on Mondays.  Below are just some of the great things that are happening!

Staff Shares

Below are some resources that were recently shared by staff.

This video was shared by one of our staff members – as a self-proclaimed metaphor junkie, I love the symbolism in The Blueberry Story.  It also serves as a great reminder regarding the complexity of our jobs and working with our students.  The video is about 6 minutes and the  metaphor comes at the end…please don’t judge Mr. Vollmer by his cream suit.  🙂

Another resource shared by a staff member is this article on the importance of compassion.  As we continue thinking about equity and access in Evergreen, it’s always helpful to read a variety of perspectives and resources on the matter.   This article is written from the experience of an educator that his recognized the shifts in their practice.

Finally, while it is highly unlikely that you have not already seen the Rita Pierson “Every Kid Needs a Champion” video, it still holds up after all those views.  Once again, this highlights the importance of relationships and compassion when working with our various students.  Thank you, Rita!!!

Final Call – Staff Questionnaire!

Just a reminder to complete the Staff Questionnaire that I sent out a couple of weeks ago.  We are gathering input from all of you while we build the master schedule.  As always, we will do the best we can to accommodate requests while still tending to the needs dictated by the schedule.  There is also an opportunity to voice some requests you have for various opportunities (leadership, higher education, certification, coaching, clubs, and more).

Click here to access the form.  Please be sure this is completed by March 31st.
