This year through the PSD Learning Coach program, I have the opportunity to be involved in a Professional Learning Community that will spend time looking at the topic of student engagement. This is one of the 3 priorities outlined by Parkland School Divison.
The PLC is an invaluable tool to have focussed time to look at our teaching practices and how we can continue to engage students in their learning. Everyone has a busy schedule, and to have dedicated time put aside for this is necessary for it to get the intentional work done that is so important. From a professional development perspectivee, the opportunity to leverage the collective knowledge, experience, and passion of the group will provide the greatest benefit.
I am excited to get started on this work today, knowing that I will be able to bring back and work with teachers in my school to implement ideas and strategies that will have a direct impact on student success and learning!
