Welcome Back!

Today was my first day back to work and it was filled with school related Professional Development or PD as we call it. We first began with an ice-breaking activity where we had to collect as many signatures from colleagues as possible in one minute. I managed to collect 28, but was not the winner. The winner won 1,000 extra copies for the year!

Next, up was a Guest Speaker who is a long time friend of our principal. Here is a video I was inspired to develop based on her motivational ABCs.

  2. Hi Erica,
    I tried to follow you on PhotoPeach but couldn't find out how to do so. I absolutely love this video. i think every teacher should make one. Can I share it with my staff?
