It Pays to Plan

A quick post to share some good news! This is a lesson on why it pays to have a plan.

We had grade level meetings on Wednesday.  We'd been hearing from the Tuesday groups and the early Wednesday groups that it would be rough.  We made a few little jokes about flak jackets and braced ourselves.

And imagine how surprised our team was to hear that everyone (principal, assistant principal, instructional coach, and most importantly district folks) was happy with our PLANS and said to, "Leave them alone."

Happy Dance!!
We are so relieved.  The math teacher has worked really hard to improve his instruction - he's got a great plan for individualizing math instruction for mastery. Awesome stuff.  And you know all about my plan.

So let this be a lesson to us all - working on a plan pays off! (And it is now posted on my school website for parents to reference throughout the year.  No more explaining how things work!)
