Each Wednesday afternoon, as we have for the past 5 years, teachers and I come together for a professional development staff meeting. Meeting topics are broad and varied. We have learned about brain development, brainstormed ways to increase content area literacy, discussed and determined how to encourage wonder and curiosity, created schedules to video tape ourselves teaching in order to hone our craft, and eaten a wide range of snacks. And that is just since August!
