One of Woodland’s core operating principles states that we believe “education is a collaborative effort” and in order to ensure that our students are prepared to be contributing and productive members of society our teachers believe that they must put into practice a type of collaboration that not only serves the Woodland students but also the teachers and students across the mid-south.
Recently, a group of nine Woodland faculty and staff members put this belief into action by not only attending but presenting at the Tennessee Association of Independent School Biennial Conference in Nashville. This group of Woodland administrators and teachers led numerous professional development sessions and attended numerous professional development sessions led by other independent school leaders.
A sample of sessions created and led by Woodland faculty and staff included:
Using Effective Classroom Management Techniques while building Community in a Middle School Classroom, Building Community Through Social Media, Creating a Positive Classroom Culture and Community, and Powerful Teaching, retrieval practices.
A sample of sessions attended by Woodland faculty and staff included: The Digital Detangler, Going Over to the Dark Side: Transitioning from the Classroom to Administration, The Key Intelligences of Highly Effective Educators, What is a Strategic Growth Plan? , Building a Culture of Emotional Intelligence, Effective Communication with Parents and families, An Educators guide to Managing Stress, What is a Strategic Growth Plan?, Hands on Science, Teaching students on the Spectrum, Effective Communication with Parents and Families, Managing ADHD in the Classroom, Creating Cultures and Connections, There is No Outside the Text: Mapping Text Based Comprehension-Structured Literacy 101
