TIES Closing session: Dr. Gary Prest-What it Takes

Former superintendent of Bloomington School District Dr. Gary Prest presented on a new STEM initiative:
  • Students (Knowing every student)
  • Team teaching (Collaboration, PLC's, shared planning time, Communities of Practice)
  • Equiped and Ethical (Teacher credentials and experiences indicates our staff are well prepared, teaching is a public activity and character is under moment by moment review-a formal code of ethics)
  • Motivated (Teaching is intensely personal, staff show their motivation everyday)

Teachers are present for all of the firsts in students lives, the aha moments, the struggles, etc. It is a privaledge!
