Summer Professional Development

  The summer is a great time for professional development.  Mrs. Dumey, Mrs. King, and I had the great opportunity to attend a professional development session with Jennifer Connolly at the St. Clair County Regional Office of Education.  In this workshop, Jennifer guided us through a technique that can be used with students to help them learn to respond more constructively to each others' written work.
