All Hail the Soup Cook-Off Champion!

Congratulations Becky VanDomelen!!!!!

Becky won the hearts and stomachs of voters with an incredibly delicious Scandinavian Salmon Chowder.

ILT Meetings/December Shareout

12/6 – ILT Workgroup (This is optional – if your group would like another session this month, please arrange and communicate this with your ILT group members)
12/13 – ILT (This is a required meeting)
12/20 – Early Release Day/ILT Shareout

ILT shareout will run in a similar fashion to last year.  We will spend time connecting with colleagues before the holiday break and share updates about where we are in the midst of our Action Plans.  We are aware that we’ve only had a few meetings, so please make the most of our next required ILT meeting as prep (12/13).

Monday Motivation!

Although this is absolutely adorable. It’s probably a good analogy for those struggling students. They will eventually get there, but sometimes it’s really hard.
