January 2016 Professional Development DayTop of Page

On Monday, January 4, led by Director Ginna Myers, and her planning team, our teaching and administrative staff participated in a highly successful day of training that began at Olympus Junior High School. An array of learning opportunities for our employees were offered as we continue to sharpen our skills that will further enhance the delivery of instruction for our students.
 
To highlight EUSD's commitment to the education of the WHOLE child, sessions offered included:
  • using technology (Google, Web-based apps) in the classroom
  • number talks
  • getting familiar with how state assessments are scored in English Language Arts and Math
  • quality physical education assessments
  • exploring the science of learning, attention, and memory, love and logic, and mindfulness in the classroom!  
Teachers from EUSD led a majority of the sessions with our very own Placer County Teacher of the Year, Kim Gerould, setting the tone for the event with an inspiring message. The January 4 Professional Development event just proved once again that the real instructional experts are in our district!
