While your students were off of school on Friday, Teachers were at Matthew Halton High School taking classes with professionals and other teachers. We had many class offerings, with a focus on FNMI. Each staff member was able to choose 2 classroom sessions for the day. I attended a session on Sensory Needs in the classroom, as that has been a hot topic with kids and teachers alike (just think fidgit spinners...) as well as a tech session on Fresh Grade (a new digital portfolio program I am rolling out in class, just check your email). It was a productive day, learning fresh concepts and getting excited about better teacher-parent communication.
