Tools and Resources to Construct Meaningful Report Card Comments

Report card season can bring on stress and anxiety for students, teachers, and even parents. What can we do to ensure that the report card comments that we give are purposeful and provide students with opportunities to grow throughout the year? In this session, we will discuss the importance of meaningful report card comments and how these comments can be used to promote growth for our students' mindsets. We will share specific comments that focus on students’ efforts and strengths as well as strategies for improvement. We will also discuss how these comments can be differentiated based on grade-band, in order to provide students with the most impactful yet understandable tools for success.

Educator Mental Health and Why We Emotionally Disengage

We work in an emotion-filled profession where empathy and passion are our greatest asset. However, what happens when those feelings are challenged or taken away entirely? How does this happen, and what can we do about it? Join us and Mandy Froehlich as we explore the reasons why educators become emotionally disengaged in the teaching profession.

Mandy Froehlich is an experienced Director of Innovation and Technology, technology integrator, and teacher, whose interest lies in reinvigorating and re-engaging teachers back into their profession, as well as exploring what’s needed to support teachers in their pursuit of innovative and divergent thinking and teaching. She consults internationally with districts and institutions in the effective use of technology to support great teaching, mental health support for educators, and how to create organizational change.

Getting Started With ClassDojo

In light of the times we are living in, teachers continue to search for effective distance learning tools and platforms.  Join us as we explore the basics of using ClassDojo, a free school communication platform that teachers, students, and families use every day to build close-knit communities by sharing what’s being learned in the classroom home through photos, videos, and messages.  We will cover creating an account, setting-up your class, inviting students and parents, and finally take a look at what students see on their screens.
