As we prepare to close out FY21, please join us for the next in our series of meetings that provide you with the opportunity to network, discuss how your year is going, and raise issues for discussion with your director colleagues. We encourage you to come with questions and needs that your colleagues can help you think through, including your initial thinking about returning in the fall.
In addition, we are excited to welcome the new SABES Math and Numeracy Curriculum and Instruction (C & I) PD Center Co-Director Heidi Schuler-Jones, who will join us for a brief portion of the meeting to introduce herself, have a chance to meet you, and learn about your PD interests and needs. Heidi will transition to the role of director after current SABES Math and Numeracy C & I PD Center Director Donna Curry retires in June.
We will introduce our "Fall PD Preview" to provide you with an overview of the key PD initiatives we will be offering in FY22, including an update on the Summer Directors' Institute. We are also eager to hear about your PD priorities.
This session will be facilitated by Luanne Teller. The regular portion of the meeting will be 90 minutes, and Luanne will be available for the remaining 30 minutes for anyone who would like to stay and ask specific questions.
