    Dear RUSD Families,
    Professional Development Left Teachers Inspired!
    While children stayed home from school last Monday, Kindergarten through eighth grade teachers participated in iInspire, an Edcamp model where teachers shared their expertise in instructional practices, best uses of technology and much more. Teachers chose to attend three one-hour long sessions which included courses such as:
    • Learn, Explain, Create with Hyperslides
    • Student Engagement Tips and Tricks
    • Close, Shared, Interactive Reading and THE AMAZING SIGNPOSTS: Comprehension Strategies for Close Reading
    • Using your iPad as a Mobile Interactive Whiteboard
    • Academic Vocabulary
    • Thinking Like a Historian - The Stanford Approach to Reading and Analyzing Primary Sources
    • Getting More Than 1 Year's Growth in 1 Year's Time: A How to Workshop
    • Reveal Student Thinking with Math Movies
    • Habits of Happiness
    • Make Learning Visual with Sketchnoting
    • Using Yoga/Movement to Reinforce Academic and Social Concepts
    • Student Centered Tech Tutorials
    • Mindfulness in the Classroom 
    to name just a few!  These sessions were taught by our own teacher experts. Everyone left the day with ideas that could be implemented in their classroom the very next day.  The only complaint we received was that there were too many interesting and engaging sessions to chose from!!  In the afternoon, teachers returned to their schools to debrief the morning sessions, then worked together in groups to plan implementation of new ideas and strategies.
    I would like to thank the Foundation for Reed Schools who first supported the iInspire program in the District several years ago, through a "Raise your Paddle" event at the Regatta.  We are extremely appreciative of our partnership with parents and our community which allows us to provide exceptional learning opportunities for our teachers and students. 
    Kindest regards,
    Nancy Lynch, Ed.D. 

    Reed Union School District Mission

    Together we provide our children with extraordinary opportunities to enlighten their minds, inspire their hearts, and strengthen their resolve to positively impact the world.
