NMS Faculty Bulletin

ImageKnow our Kids, Meet their Needs, Up the Mountain to T-2-4!

This is our last full week of instruction before the practice STAAR.  I know everyone is working hard to help our kids focus and stay on track for success.  I was in a teacher’s classroom this week and she had this written on her board and was saying it to her students:

This work is important.
You can do it.
I won’t give up on you!

That is an important message and we need to make sure our kids hear it from all!  Thanks!

I sent an email to you all regarding an online class that SBISD has been invited to join.  I am late in getting this information to you –  I did start the class this weekend – and it is awesome.  It is all on character strengths!  The lessons are delivered through very short videos – 3 minutes to 13 minutes long!  I  highly encourage everyone to register and just check out the videos.  Martin Selignman and Angela Duckworth, many researchers in the forefront right now!  There are videos on self-control, PERMA, Grit, they are short, informative and I was motivated by them!  I sent the email last week – I am not sure if the videos will still be available after the course is over!  Hopefully – you can carve our some time to watch some!  You won’t be disappointed!  Week 2 about micro-moments and it is very interesting!
