FACULTY PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT DAY INSPIRES

While students had the day off on February 18, CTA faculty were able to come together for a day of learning and collaborating.  It isn’t often to have an all-faculty day and Rabbi Drandoff took the opportunity for opening remarks to reflect on how educators can make lasting impressions for many years to come and the impact we have on each of your children.  Mrs. Miller and Mrs. Eisenberg along with teacher presenters, set up the with various learning opportunities by grade level or discipline and sessions included:

  1. Creating student growth plans using MAP data – Eliza Delman
  2. Finding new tools to integrate technology with our interactive board pilot program, while having some good laughs
  3. Refreshing our knowledge about Project Adam.  We are lucky to be a Heart Safe School. – Eliza Delman
  4. Making goals for our next writing units in the Lower School – Annie Taranto
