PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT The Five Dysfunctions of a Team: A Leadership Fable This professional development was designed by our building Principal to focus ve main strategies on leadership and team cohesion from the author Patrick Lencioni. The lead teachers met once per month to focus on this professional development and discuss skills we could take back to our common planning teams to promote a positive, safe place for discussions and effective practices. R.I.S.C. Classroom Design and Delivery (CDD) This training was part of the R.I.S.C. (Re-inventing Schools Coalition) program that was purchased by Acton School. The RISC program focused on promoting a positive, school-wide culture and a common language driven by a standards-based approach. R.I.S.C. Instructional Design (ID) This training was also part of the R.I.S.C. program. The ID training focuses on how teachers delivery their instruction to best t the needs of students using a standards-based curriculum. This training digs deep into standards by discussing rigor, multiple learning styles and teaching styles. M.C.C.L. Leadership Meetings The MCCL (Maine Cohort for Customized Learning) is a group of state educational leaders that meet once per month to discuss best educational practices for Maine students. The leaders design professional development for teachers, hold discussions on what is best practice, focus on standards-based curriculum, partner with the Maine Department of Education for the most current and up to date information as well as have an collaborative opportunity for all districts involved to discuss pertinent information amongst one another. Art & Science of Teaching By Bea McGarvey Bea McGarvey designed this intensive three-day training to present methods and strategies for being a reective teacher. These strategies were taken back to the schools and shared with teachers to us in their classrooms with a focus on improving teacher instruction. Better PLC By Kevin Perks Kevin Perks is an educational consultant that has been working with a large array of school districts that range from Southern Maine to Arizona. Kevins philosophy proves to be intriguing by suggesting that teachers must utilize their common planning time more efciently. The strategies and protocols that Kevin has designed can prove to be a successful method to increasing student achievement through best professional practice within teachers Professional Learning Communities (PLC). ABOUT ME ! I am a very active and a driven person. I enjoy spending my free time with my family of six. I have a favorite outdoor activity for each of the many seasons that Maine has to offer. I have grown up with strong morals for family time and believe that is very important to pass this along to my children. One of my favorite times of the day is dinner time where we sit at our very large table while laughing and sharing our day together.
