This year I have been appointed as one of the PORs (Person Of Responsibility) at the school. The school admin (principal and vice-principal) would like us to focus on doing professional development (PD) for the teachers at our school. Our first goal for this year was to go paperless for our Curriculum Night – which is happening next week Thursday. In order to do this, we organised a day during which teachers attended one of three sessions to learn how to create a Google doc, share it, as well as edit another person’s work. My colleague did the presentation and I helped people with the tasks she set out for them.
So far the workshop sessions have had positive feedback; and I have had a few people come to me for extra help. It is exciting to see people embrace the new concept enthusiastically and wish to take it a step further to enhance their teaching and assessment practice.
This week I am grateful for the opportunity I have had to help organise these sessions for my colleagues, as well as to help teach them. I am also grateful for the vehicle through which I can share my practices.
