Day 55: Teachers are learners too

The Hill Elementary School choir kicked off our day of professional development with a dedication to Mr. Vincent Torres, our retiring school board president. He's done a lot of great things for the district during his tenure, and he will definitely be missed.

The rest of the day we were in small groups organized by subject level, giving time for teachers to study the new standards in depth. For teachers that worked with me, they read a chapter from a book on inquiry and wrote a personal teaching philosophy statement in addition to other learning activities put together by the teachers.
