We are just a few short weeks until the start of our new school year! I think I can speak for our whole staff by saying that we're very excited (and also a bit nervous)! We've been working hard on getting the school ready, and also getting ourselves ready. We've been looking through resources, watching videos on Conscious Discipline, and planning for our upcoming days. Today we tuned into a webinar led by Will Richardson and Bruce Dixon called "The New Story of Modern Learning: Framing a New Narrative of Schooling." There were many components that hit home with me, but I'm going to focus on something they talked about: everything you do tells a story.
EVERYTHING. From the expressions we give to the things we like to do. I think this is so important because we can learn a lot about the people around us by understanding this concept.
My name is Kelsy Power, and I will be teaching the upper grades at The Innovation School starting this fall. I have taught at another private school in Bismarck for the past 5 years, and have loved the small family-like community that it provides. I believe that relationships are the key to successful schools, and I look forward to working with all the children and families this upcoming year!
