Day 42 (Day 2 Week 9) Learning from home: Summer Learning for Faculty and Staff

How do we learn and grow when we are apart? Well, this is day 42, and we know we are doing it through distance learning with our students.  It is hard. It is rewarding. It is building strong teams and relationships.

On April 2, we launched the choices for summer professional learning: reading and watching. We make a commitment to read and learn every summer.

Ok…telling the truth: I was worried about sending this out to faculty and staff. We must look forward and plan for the beginning of the next school.  However, 2 minutes – literally – after I pressed send, we had a faculty member submitting their pick. And, in the first hour, we had a dozen picks. Whew! Now, a little more than a month later, all summer reading and learning choices have been made and books have been delivered to each teacher-learner.

Below is the 2020 Summer Learning flyer that announced the choices for this summer that was sent to our faculty and staff.

The results are in.

In case you are interested, links to reviews of each book are shared below as well as the two sets of TED Talks: Voices and Perspectives and Health and Wellness. #SoGood

Choral Counting and Counting Collection and Reading To Make a Difference have both been used in book study groups during this school year.  We hope to harness the power of the re-read and spread these ideas.

What are you reading/watching/doing to grow as a learner? What do you want to read/watch/do to grow over the summer? Please feel invited and encouraged to watch us (or join us) learn by following #TrinityLearns and #TrinityReads in June and July.

I cannot wait to hear what you learn!

I love you, and I miss you.
