2018-2019 Professional Learning First Semester (Petal Middle School)
For Petal Upper Elem. School Staff Only.
In the Petal School District, our mission is to
empower all students. We believe that Professional Learning Communities
are so important in helping us accomplish this mission that this time for
teachers to learn from one another and to focus on student learning is a
cornerstone for our district. We believe that teachers working
collaboratively on common goals can affect their individual classrooms and lead
to better results for their school.
Team members work together to establish what students should learn and
then monitor student progress towards that goal. Adjustments can then
made to the instructional plan based on how students respond and perform. By focusing on continuous student improvement
and assessing our progress by results rather than intentions, we believe that
teachers grow as educators and refine their instructional toolbox and that all
students are afforded the opportunity to an excellent education.
