What Makes Us Effective?

To be effective we need to continue to work to be:
•Professionals who care about students first, student growth second, and our subject matter with the time we have left.
•Professionals that are willing to take risks, willing to admit we do not have all the answers and never lose the yearning to keep learning.
•Professionals who are willing to look in the mirror when there is a problem as opposed to out the window.

Our school will need to continue to strive to:
•Consider each student individually and help each student find their PASSION.
•Build an educational plan and career plan for each student based on their needs and their PASSION.
•Throw away conventional methodology when it no longer works and do what it takes to affect, engage, and change students to meet individual and societal needs.

To continue to make our school community more effective we will:
•Reach out to parents to help them keep their student(s) engaged in and ready for school.
•Seek resources and start conversations to affect change in the community that will bring about more support for education.
•Continually seek out best practices, use current research, and always believe that education can get better.

Please share your ideas!……”We get what we will settle for!”

  1. I agree with all of this, but if we are going to do a transition plan for EVERY student, we're going to need a bigger staff (are you getting the Jaws thing there?). Transition plans are not quick and easy. I really see the value of doing this, though.
