Week 16: Innovative Educators Make Innovative Students

Week 16 began differently than any other this year...Monday morning (7:00a.m.) I sat down to place all the orders for the Makerspace, at approximately 1:00p.m. they were complete.  Friday morning, we began receiving some of the orders, it was so exciting! 

There was a lot of action in the Makerspace this week too. Our awesome staff at Clinton Public Schools are so talented! They have been carpenters, electricians, and painters this week. TV's were hung, walls and shelves were painted, and more electrical sockets were added. Our Wednesday faculty meeting even began with a fun activity in the Makerspace. It's good to be a Red Tornado! 

Random Acts of Kindness are in full swing at Southwest! Thank you Ms. Brickhouse and Ms. Tucker for allowing me to be the recipient of one your class projects. They made my day! 

Southwest December Innovation & Tech Newsletter went out this week, also Thursday afternoon I hosted a "Blogging 101" session. I am always so encouraged as teachers enter the room...there was a lot of sharing, connecting, learning, and growing (hopefully new bloggers too!).  I am so Blessed to work with the BEST! 

Friday afternoon I got to teach fourth grade! Mrs. Clark won the November Tech Challenge and her prize was a half day off while I subbed for her. Two of my former third graders were in her class, that was a special treat for me! 

The ELL side of my job is amazing! I am at Nance two mornings a week. I love center time, the kiddos are progressing so fast! Southwest's program is running so smoothly. Ms. Jamie is doing a fabulous job! I can not wait to see the progress each student has made as we meet next week to go over data. 

It is hard to believe this was the 16th Weekly Recap. The students did an outstanding job and we learned a few interesting facts about Mrs. Clark too! 

Thank you for allowing me to share my journey as I learn and grow each week, I love my job!
Mrs. Hime
