03 Apr Professional Development Day At WA
While our students ended the school day early this Wednesday, our faculty spent the remainder of the day planning. This intentional time to look at the final weeks of this school year, and even next year, allows our teachers the opportunity to be proactive.
Yesterday, the emphasis was on the classroom. While we focus on finishing the school year strong, we are also hard at work preparing for next year. Mr. Satterly began the time by presenting the middle school schedule to the entire faculty and reviewing the academic plan for next year. Then, our department heads had the opportunity to meet with the Director of Curriculum and Instruction, Mrs. Mary Lou Capan, to review curriculum mapping expectations. Finally, all our teachers could give their full attention to Curriculum Trak, the software we used to track and adjust our curriculum to make it even stronger.
This mid-week break in our schedule is an essential investment in the dedicated faculty at Westminster Academy.
