2019-2020 school year
For the 2019-2020 school year, I am setting the following goals and will periodically be reflecting on them. To keep my list reasonably manageable and yet comprehensive, I am trying to choose one or two main goals for each major aspect of my job.
- (Middle School Dean) The Middle School team has asked to more regularly and explicitly integrate the study of This We Believe into our work, with periodic re-readings, sharing its principles and our practice with Upper School teachers, and ensuring new middle school staff are grounded in this work. My main goal, then, is to facilitate all this happening.
- (Humanities 7 teacher) Expand on the highly successful existing model of the course to add two units integrating our work with Humanities 8 students,one potentially focused on a Model United Nations project, one focused on civic engagement. Continue to refine how best to effectively integrate student self-reflection and teacher feedback in the overall assessment process and in progress reports to families.
- (Rock Band teacher) Integrate new students into the group while continuing our positive momentum working together to coordinate individual development of skills and personal style with the collaborative development of arrangements that result in strong performances.
- (Social Media work) Continue to encourage and enable a broad variety of voices on the blog while keeping up a positive presence on Twitter and Facebook.
